Re: Paper mache

You probably won't.  It takes time for the moisture inside to work to the surface and evaporate.

All I can suggest is to aim a fan on it. If you can include a LITTLE heat (don't start a fire!) for the fan to blow toward it, it should help.

Use a faster-drying paint like tempera or acrylics, and aim the fan at the paint, too (no heat).

Good luck!  But start earlier next time. Papier mache is not an instant process.
