HI

I am no expert but I have used it a few times.

I think it really depends on what you are making and what purpose it will be used for. When I made some pumpkins that were going to be cut open I think they had about 8 layers or so but other things that are staying solid I only put about 4 or 5 on.

Check out "Stolloween"'s site, what he doesn't know isn't worth knowing, the man is a genious when it comes to papiermache.

Thanks ya'll. A jack-o-lantern is what I'm making. I'm wanting to try and make a pumpkin rot scarecrow and this will be the head.

I used to use this stuff all the time as a kid. Use five or more layers. As many as you feel comfortable with. Just as long as it's stable at the ending result.

A single layer of celluclay or homemade paper mache clay, about 3/4 of an inch thick, needs no addition layers.

It's rock hard, too.

Stolloween usually puts down a few regular layers of paper mache before doing paper mache clay, but I've seen really sturdy pumpkins made with just one thick layer of clay alone.
