2. Blow up the balloon part way and tie a knot.
3. Place the knotted end in the bowl.
4. Apply a layer of slightly diluted white glue to about half the bowl area.
5. Start to place the pieces of paper over the glue, then quickly brush more paste over the pieces.
6. (Your fingers will get very sticky!)
7. Keep adding paper, making sure you have covered every bit of the balloon at the bowl end.
8. (Decide how deep you want you bowl to be as you work.)
9. When you have run out of tissue paper scraps or are happy with the way your piece looks, apply a final layer of glue to seal all the edges.
10. Let it really dry... be patient!
11. Pop the balloon, and the bowl should pull away easily from it.
12. Trim the edges - if desired.
13. If your dish is too floppy, apply a coat of undiluted glue to the inside, and when that has dried, a coat to the outside.
14. Repeat until the bowl is firm enough to use.
torn tissue paper scraps – approximately one sheet
white glue – add a small amount of water to make it runnier
dish or bowl covered in plastic film to hold the balloon as you work on it
