Teachers at Work

The papier mâché should dry slowly, out of sunlight.  Each layer of papier mâché should dry before applying a new layer.

The teachers learned a lesson: don't rush the drying process!!  In a hurry to get to lunch, they applied two layers of papier mâché and then placed the landscapes to dry in the summer heat.  When they returned from lunch, they found that the landscapes had shrunk and the edges had curled up from the board.  Extra masking tape was needed to tape down the edges before they could continue with the next step.

At this point, boulders may be added and glued onto the surface of the landscape.  Next comes the second messy step... adding the sand.
