I havn't done this in years! Here's the pulp half made, lots of news paper and about 7 litres of boiling water and lots of stirring to help break up the newspaper fibres. It took around half and hour for the kids and I to get it to this stage and then we let it soak until the water was cold. Once cold it was squished and squeezed till my hands ached in order to remove the excess water and break the fibres of the paper and then about half a cup of wall paper paste was added to turn the mush into a lovely pliable dough, much like playdough.
Wall paper glue (from what I have read) not only helps bind the pulp but it also contains a fungiside that will stop the pulp from going mouldy. From the pulp I made the quails and the eggs (the kids made ducks, snowmen and eggs.) I am going to make another lot of pulp from a finer paper (like tissues) that I am told will give me a fine finish as well form details..the whole lot will then be painted. I think at this time of year it will probably take a week for the pulp to dry out proparly.
I had quite a lot of fun playing with the pulp and from what I've seen online it can be mastered and turned into all sorts of wonderful things like puppets, art dolls and sculpture. I look forward to finding out!
