I used a large punching-ball style balloon for the base. I covered it with paper mache newspaper strips, using a coarse buckwheat flour. Then, instead of colored tissue paper, placed delicately on with a thin glue solution, I used good old blue painters’s tape, the kind that I used to create the Dance O’ Dance floor circles… from some of the extra rolls left over from last year’s Camp Invention.

The ship is made of a grocery bag. The cannons, cannonballs, anchor and flag are all black construction paper. The skull and cross bones are white construction paper, but the sail is simple printer paper. The smoke is cotton balls.

There’s a few pieces of duct tape holding the hemp twine on, but the rest is held together with rubber cement.
