I decided to go with paper mache for the first couple layers. I added to the paper mache mixture by adding a paper pulp to it. I'm hoping that by doing this, the edges of the newspaper will blend together better. I've also noticed that when you soak the paper strips in water prior to adding the paper mache mixture, the strips will bend much easier to where you need them. These were baked in the oven at 350 to dry them faster. No ill effects were noticed. I also nixed the glue from the mix as it seems to make sanding difficult.
