You are Going to Thank me for This

More important than legal paternity testing for the working artist is having a home that speaks to the quality of your creativity and your ’eye’. This can be particularly difficult when you are both poor and a live or conceptual artist. If you are not classically trained, interior design can be a total nightmare, yet people will judge the quality of your work, if your home is not cool enough. So here is the tip of the day: make your own furniture. Making shelves and tables out of recycled materials is ecological, affordable and incredibly cool. All you need to get started is some old cardboard boxes, newspaper, and wheat paste. If you have some wire and masking tape it would be helpful, but not at all necessary. You can find a basic wheat paste recipe anywhere on the internet, or you can buy pva, or wood glue if you want to use it at key point for extra strength. Start by building a basic bookshelf by wiring two boxes one of top of the other. If you want to be all professional about paper maiche what you want to do is lay down one sheet of newspaper, cover it with wheat paste, put another layer of newspaper on top, cover with paste, then a third layer. Rip this sandwich into strips an apply to the wired together boxes with a bit of additional paste. You can build up sculptural elements using wadded up newspaper taped on and then covered with the wet newspaper. Be sure to let it dry thoroughly before painting.
