Hi Larry,
I haven't had much time to keep up with the list, so I may be a little =
late. I just wanted to add my two cents. I have used wheat\wall paper =
paste in the past for making large masks, (3 to 4 feet wide.) I don't =
mix it very thick and we use newspaper cut about 2" -3" wide and just =
dip it into the paste. We only put three layers on and then on top of =
that we put two layers of grocery sack paper, also dipped in the paste. =
After all is dry, usually three or four days, it is very strong. Any =
sharp, pointed edges can be smooth out by cutting them with an exacto =
knife and gluing them down. I hope this helps.
Good luck,
Rob Morey
