 Huh does it rain in your craft area, astormorray?

Sometimes I think it does. My only experience with paper mache was that it didn't dry and molded, so I'm not comfortable working with it in the current damp state of affairs. Also, I would rather do it outside, as doing it inside would require clearing off some sort of surface, most likely already filled with half abandoned projects...  Wink

YumJello01, thank you! Grin I'm really happy to have created something that made you stop and drop me a line. Whee!

I have no experience with the papermache stuff you can buy ready made in stores. As to moldiness, maybe you can try this method:
I usually ( also for reasons of reducing trash+ not spending any unnecessary money) form the shape out of tin foil and then add two or three layers of newspaper (ripped into strips) over it. For glue I use wallpaper-glue mixed with some latex for waterresistance. Projects made in this manner take around 5 hours to dry completely, even if it's cold and damp..... Grin

awesome! thanks for the tip. I've even cleaned up one of my work surfaces...  Wink of course, still have a backlog of projects, but a step in the right direction.
