I wonder who paid the bills while Edison was trying out 1000 different 
materials?   And they weren't really mistakes, it was research to find out what did 
not work...As my brother, a commercial realtor says, "It takes 20 calls to 
make a sale.   I look forward to calls 1 through 19, because I know the next will 
result in a sale."

I haven't followed this thread, but the use of "red rosin sheathing paper" 
used in the building trades is the perfect answer to making paper mache.   It's 
strong, absorbent, cheap and easily available. 

Ceramic clay is NOT a good choice for creating marionettes, too heavy and 
brittle.   Ceramic clay is for sculpture and dishes.
