Ready For the Explosion!

This is a volcano made by Abby, Ana, Samantha and Mehakpreet.
To make their volcano waterproof, they got clear varnish and that also makes it very shiny.
To get the shape they glued down a bottle to a piece of cardboard and then glued strips of cardboard to the bottle and Paper mache  it.
Then painted it.
This Volcano was made by Lyric and Mark.
First they put a bottle on a piece of cardboard They used  newspaper and cardboard to paper mache it.
Then they painted it. 

This Volcano was made by Emma and  Arpit with the help of Julie
it didn't go as planned
So first they made a small cone out of card then they rolled up some cardboard and stuck the cone on, around this stage it looked a little weird but the they attached the volcano to a base with cardboard strips. After they Paper Mached it,Painted it and put trees on, then it was ready. They called it mount doom.

This Volcano was made by Shaye and Maddie
They made a volcano out of a coke bottle, cardboard, duck tape, paint, newspaper to  paper mache their volcano and hot glue.
 First they took a coke bottle and hot glued it to some cardboard and made a structure. 
 Next they started to paper mache it. They did the same with the mini volcano.
Step 3: Then they painted it with brown paint and a mixture of orange and red.
And they were done

This volcano was made by Bella, Ruby, Loveleen and Amanda.
First they got a cone and wrapped cardboard around it to make the shape. Then they paper mached it with newspaper and a special kind of glue. Then they left it outside for 25 minutes to let it dry. 
They then got some cardboard and stuck a small bottle to it.
They put the volcano paper mache around it.  Then painted it.
We used newspaper to make bushes around it.

This volcano was made by Harman, Slade and Dylan
first we glue tacked the bottle to the cardboard after we cut out 4 stripes of cardboard and glue tacked it to the bottle
then we started to paper mashaye and glued the paper to the bottle in a volcano shape then we finished then we sarted to paint it and that was it.

They used a 1.5 liter bottle of Fanta and a packet of Mint flavored Mentos.
They used five layers of Paper to use as the shell of the volcano, then added brown and blue paint to make the volcano look as effective as possible, as they had the outlook of the volcano being in the water. Then added red and orange paint to paint the 'lava' on.

They used a cone for a template and paper mashed it. They Painted it with brown paint mixed with red paint. They
poured diet coke in the bottle and threw 7 mentos in it.

This Volcano was made by Grace with some help from Haley.
First they cut out their cardboard base,
and then they glued a cup down onto the cardboard piece,
Next they started building clay around the bottom area's of the volcano,
Then they cut off the top of the cup and then 
The next thing they did was they started to build up the clay around the cup making a volcano shape.
Then they painted all of it.
