Hy again Mary,

Since you mentionned the importance of the cellulose in the wheat paste in 
your article...

What do you think is best between Methyl Cellulose (often sold as Art Paste) 
and Wheat Wallpaper Paste, and by how much (whatever measuring or evaluating 
unit you prefer) is the one better?

Methyl Cellulose is easier to find for me, and I happen to have some in 
stock, in powder form.
I've used it a lot in the past, before I actually knew what I was doing, and 
the results were weak, because the applications were too thin and made with 
newspaper. Recent texture tests (with thin kraft paper) were rather 
encouraging (kind of stiff, matte, very smooth, would require more layers to 
really know the strenght), although I have yet to make a full project with 
I will, soon.

I got some Polymer clay figures to make first (Don Quixotte and Sancho).

The queue of "techniques to try" keeps stretching and stretching....
Life ain't boring!
