Subject: Re: [Puptcrit] clay from paper mache


I started using wet paper toweling over plasticine when I was working with 
celastic - water is a natural separator for acetone.
Kept with it when switched to mache.
I like it cause there is no residual oils that have to be cleaned either 
from the model or my hands. Also when there are pieces of toweling left in 
the positive head, just put some more wheat paste inside to smooth it down.
Works for me.

I have used vaseline or petroleum jelly for 35 years. Obviously if it is
spread like cake frosting its a mistake. however for paper mache work (in my
case both masks and puppets) it has been the standby.
