Subject: [Puptcrit] clay from paper mache


I am trying (for the first time) to get plasticine clay out of a paper mache 
head.  There seems to be alot left behind after my first attempts.  Is there 
a better way to do this rather than the dig and pick approach?

I did cut it open after two layers of paper mache were well-dried.  It 
actually sat there for a month.  Was this the problem?  The clay reamins in 
the crags of the initial layer.

I didn't use an initial separation layer (like wet paper towels).  Was this 
a problem?  I just started with the initial layer of paper mache.

So let's say it can't be fully removed, then, will it affect the life of the 
puppet? It just might be that this is a satusfactory result and I just don't 
know it.

Thanks for your help...
