    Get a small number of embroidery hoops of different sizes. Insert small
    nails or brass tacks in the "seam" an inch or so apart all the way around
    the rim. You can caulk or otherwise waterproof-adhere these pins. Have the
    kids wrap cotton string around the pins like when they make "string art".
    Dip this into the pulp, press out some of the water with either a circular
    piece of board or just sponges. You can put them in front of a fan to dry,
    then cut or lift off.
    These molds are reusable. They look amazing if you spatter them with
    watercolor while still damp. They look even better if you layer them up.

    You can look up the work of Alan Sheilds for examples.
