Donna - are you asking me this question in reference to my post on the use
of "Claymache?"

If so, I wouldn't try to make something this large out of either wonder
bread clay or clamache. You're right - they will crack. Why don't you just
use clay for something this large?

The only thing that comes to mind is reinforcing the material with chicken
wire inside, which is what I do for large scale papermache projects. But
it sounds to me like the selection of material does not match its use.
