Subject: Re: [Puptcrit] Paper Mache Strenght Test

Haha! Mathieu, this is great! I recently made some parts of model using
paper mache after being inspired by your work. This has just inspired me to
make more things using it!
Even after using it I didn't realise it could be made to be so strong.
Thank you for sharing! I really hope it encourages others to try out this
great craft material too.
