Original Papier Mache? Answered
Back in Victorian times, many items were made of what is described as Papier Mache. The result was nothing like what we recognise today as Papier Mache....... It looked more like modern plastic...... as smooth as plastic. Was this because the paper was shredded to a much finer consistency than we tend to do these days ? - Or was it something to do with the type of glue, or the process itself ?
