Egg Carton House Exterior

5 posts in this topic

Hello. I haven't posted here in quite some time, unfortunately life sometimes gets in the way ... :)

I have been working on my witch house and wanted to make a very weathered gray coloured flagstone exterior. I have collected a number of old egg cartons which are the ideal colour to begin with, but wondered if anyone knows how I can actually make the 'mulch' for the bricks. I have seen a papier mache type substance made from the egg cartons that would be terrific, but unfortunately, I can't seem to find the right ingredients ... no doubt some preservative would have to be added, or a mould inhibitor?

Can anyone tell me or point me in the direction of some information regarding this? I would be most grateful.

Jeanie

Welcome home, Jeanie. What about using some of the premixed wallpaper paste that has mold inhibitor as one of its ingredients?

That's a good idea, thank you for that. It's the mould I'm particularly worried about further down the track ... :)
