        Hi. Glad you liked them. We paper mached over the stuffed plastic bags,
        legs, and feet with a variety of glue maches due to running out of things.
        First we used some Vano starch I had left over. Then we switched to Ross Art
        Paste which wasn't really strong enough, and finished up with Elmer's glue
        and water mixture 1/2 and 1/2. The last layer of paper mache was newsprint
        strips. The toilet paper "clay" was used only for the features of the face.
        I thought about plaster gauze for the features but finally decided that the
        TP clay was a heck of a lot stronger when dry than the plaster an easier to
        manipulate so went with that. It proved to work the best. Toodles...Bunk
