I often use some percent of paper pulp in my clay. It is great. Large
amounts of pulp make a poofy/ Egyptian paste textured mix that has a
mind/springiness of its own. I enjoy working with it, but have not
considered it for my students. It develops an odor in a week or so. I
don't know if my students would recognize its benefits without more
substantial clay experience. In the bisque firing the fiber burns out and
can trip smoke detectors. EEE! I like paper clay; it makes the keeping wet
and the drying of large pieces easy to manage without daily devotion.
