i have heard that some of you plaster on paper mache to your dummies to make them look better. Well paper mache rots. So what do you do you do to stop this rotting. you need to dry it out. What techniqies do you use to dry out the paper mache. Also if anyone has any other ideas other than paper mache. Thanks.

In less than a mere 100 years you and I will be rotting too!
Remember when you are away, don't forget to rot!

There are things you can do to paper mache to make it hold up better. Check out the Stolloween site for some ideas.

You could also use Monster Mud, and read up on some of the techniques where skeletons are detailed. Search for the word "corpsify."
