    This is paper MACHE not paper CLAY. Paper mache is paper mash (French, chewed paper) where paper clay is a mixture of paper pulp and clay (and a commercial product).

    Nice, I used to do something similar. For large volumes put the toilet paper into water, mash then sieve. Also a few drops of oil of cloves will keep it from going moldy.
