Some people avoid glossy magazine paper and others swear by it. Miranda Rook uses nothing but!
See Miranda's technique using the glossies and egg box cartons:

The results speak for themselves - check out Miranda's gallery:
She has some beautiful work posted here. I love the Rook!
I've never quite understood the aversion to glossy paper, as the main difference was usually the inclusion of clay.
I will differ with her on the drying of the finished pulp, though. I made a fairly large batch of regular pulp and formed it into balls about 2.5" (6 cm) across, and ran into a mold problem inside. Of course, I live in what could be referred to as a 'moist' environment, so they probably didn't dry fast enough to the center. Since then, I make flat patties about 1/2" (1 cm) thick, and have had no problems.
