Are you planning to put the titles all over Jude?
If so what glue did you use for the papier mache?

Hi Von....sorry l did'nt see your replies.
l have used flour and water paste for the p/mache, but then l did 3 layers of pva glue and white acrylic paint. Can you give me the links you found, l could'nt find that much info. Its really strange how different pc's can show different links....my neighbour and l can never find the same things :-| :-|

take care and thank you:-)

Here's one option


If you click on the link she answers some questions.

I think the upshot is if the base is strong enough then it will be ok.
Would love to see it when it's finished.
Take care
