Greek Black Figure Pottery

In the past, when making Greek pottery, we have used Sculpey clay to make vases and then painted them.  This time we decided to do paper mache.  I picked up this lesson here at Art Lessons For Kids on Papier Mache Greek Vases.   We used a flour and water mixture as the glue and tissue paper instead of newspaper to cover the balloon.  When they hardened, the kids painted war or hunting scenes in black figure.  And here they are:

My oldest decided to cut her hardened paper mache in half to make a bowl.
