I have been usng Ross Art Paste, at one time called Pritt Art Paste, for =
years. Although I have noticed a slight change in the product , I have =
had no trouble with it. (Class 1)The students use the paper from brown =
paper grocery bags (twisted, crushed and pounded to condition it to a =
"rag-like feel) for the first layer of their paper mache project, =
creating a nice sturdy base. (Class 2) Then depending on the project, =
they use the white craft paper off the large 36" rolls available in the =
schools, if painting. And, if not painting, they use colored =
construction paper or that same 36" paper only the colored stuff. I =
have enjoyed using this product because of its ability to "keep" and =
easy clean up. For those who stated that the good old flour and water =
recipe gives a harder surface, I definitely agree. I guess that there is =
a trade off. Barbara:)
