I think one of my collegue boils his egg carton pulp to facilitate 
separation of fibers.
His pulp keeps for MONTHS in the fridge.

It contains water, white glue, and more than a few drops of linseed oil too.
His pulp in the fridge is always dryer than what he needs to use (keeps 
better with less moisture)

When he needs more pulp, he takes some out of the container, puts it into 
another clean container, and adds more white glue for stickyness, and a bit 
of water and linseed oil to improve flow. I've touched his pulp in both 
states, and it looks very easy to handle.
I can't tell from his own results, he makes so darn simplistic shapes 
(egg-heads with eyes) that I can't tell the properties of the pulp once 
dry,e xcept that it is nearly indestructible.
Linseed oil sure helps the hardening.
