Slip would work just fine. Maybe Celluclay if it has a high paper content (I don't know what that's made of). I have no experience with instant papier mache in any form so I don't have a clue as to how it might work. But making paper pulp really isn't that big a deal so I've never felt the need to experiement with other additives.
In fact, I think I perform a community service when I make paper clay - Since cheap paper works well, like the rough toilet paper in the school bathrooms, I exchange a good roll of TP for their bad roll and figure I've made someone happy when they use the soft stuff I've left behind in trade!

I saw some of the 'recipes' for paperclay. Do you think you can you use slip for the clay slurry and instant paper Mache, or Celluclay as your paper mush?
