i jsut had a question about this forum. i know a lot of people post here, but does anyone ever respond to the posts? i was jsut wondering.
Yes, they do... if you look at all the threads you will see the replies below them. Sometimes it is days, weeks or months later that someone will see a post and want to share their experiences with the poster.
Like in most art forms, there is no right or wrong way to do things, but the more ideas and opinions we all get, the better our chances of success.

Looking forward to chatting Papier Mache
i work with preschoolers and therefore am concerned about toxicity of wallpaper paste. i have tried flour and water but it makes the papier mache have a flaky white texture and colour when dry. is this why you boil? if not, why do you recommend heating the mixture of flour and water in your instructions?
are there any ways to prevent mould when using flour and water? some of our creations, i will want to last.
FYI - Ross makes a papier mache art paste that is non-toxic. I use it in my artist-in-residence programs at schools. 'Haven't lost a kid yet. It is sold in a powder form like their wallpaper paste. Doesn't mold. I'm not sure about its availability in the UK, but you could ask your local art supplier...
