Product Description

 

Masks and toys of papier mache are made in Raghurajpur, Puri, Jeypore and some other places. Folk opera groups who dramatize plays based on epics and puranas use these.

The materials used in the craft are paper, fevicol, gum and plaster of Paris. These products are prepared very indigenously putting water soaked waste paper layer after layer up to a desired thickness over moulds of clay and allow drying. After it is dried, it is separated from mould. Over it, a layer of cloth is put with a pasty material made of chalk and glue. After it is completely dried, the artisans paint with indigenous colour to bring out the desired look.

The folk painters make beautiful toys with detachable limbs like nodding tigers, other animals and different types of masks in paper machie. Manufacturing of utility items like packing boxes, flower vases, etc., out of paper pulp has added a new dimension to this craft.
