What a fantastic idea Paintist, if I leave them in the bath, the paper mush sets and we could play life size Subuteo (sp?)

Years ago, I went to see an installation of these figures at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts. They filled the floor of the gallery. I was disappointed that they were covered with a sheet of plexiglass, but one of the things that delighted me was that you could smell them... You caught a whiff of the characteristic smell of clay and smoke from outside in the hallway, even before you could see the figures.
Playing in the newspapers looks as if it were a lot of fun!
