I have used the Ross paste quite a bit this year and have found that mixing
it with warm-to-hot water helps it not be so lumpy at first which means less
fussing with it. One thing I did with 3rd grade was had them use scrap
construction paper to finish their piece. The paper was thicker and it
turned out to be pretty sturdy--much more than newspaper. and they did
designs and color with the paper so we didn't paint them. Susan.

<<I tried Ross art paste and found that it didn't seem very sticky. Is this
because I tried to mix it with less water first--it reminded me of silly
putty, then I added the right amount. I needed to make a 4' head and
gooped up paper with it but it just didn't do it. The paper didn't really
seem very stiff when it dried and it didn't stick parts together well.
What am I doing wrong?>>
