Subject: Re: [Puptcrit] clay from paper mache

Not having a separator layer of wet toweling was probably your problem.
As far as still being able to use it...probably.
Get as much out as you can and then coat the interior with 
a lot of scupt or coat...or another layer of mache...inside....or  gesso....
it should be okay...Biggest problem would be the additional weight.
at least that is what I think.
