Pinatas, pinatas, pinatas!

We lovingly hand craft custom made piñatas and other paper mache products to suit your requirements.

Painting pretty pictures

The piñatas featured on this blog, so far, are all made with coloured paper. We’ve been trying to get more hands on experience with the medium of papier mache.

This first painting is stolen from Esher and remade in our own style. It’s part of a set of two butterfly canvases hung in my hallway. They’re the first paintings we ever did.
The second picture is the other half of the pair. We're not sure what kind of butterfly its meant to be! From one side the overlay is more see through than the other so as you walk past it becomes more transparent or opaque.

All of my paintings use the whole canvas, including the edges. We're still experimenting with different types of paint and canvases (including clothes). We’d like to play around with batiking next. There’s just something about playing with hot wax and tjanting tools...

These are mum door signs we made because the ones on the market are just a bit too twee for most of the mums we know. You can't really tell from these pictures but the colour is painstakingly layered to create a spray can effect.

Ball and chain piñata.

This ball and chain piñata is made mostly from newspaper – including the chain! Its also reinforced with wire so it can take a thorough hammering! 

There are faster and easier ways of making a chain other than making individual links. 

This one is on display at full circle bespoke design emporium. We haven't been able to find any other images and no one seems to be doing them in the UK at this time.

Dolphin piñata

Very cute and popular design so we usually keep some in stock. This one is a donation to a local school raffle. 

 This pinata measures around 60cm from nose to tail and would cost £15 for a simple version.
