What materials did you use? Paper tape, plastic garbage bag, duct tape for the form. Wood for the stand and an old t-shirt to cover.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? It takes a whole weekend with all the steps needed. First to make her, dry her, fill her, get her on a stand. Each step took time for me or for hubby to do. It is really rewarding when successfully done. She is pretty much spot on my size as we did tape tightly on the first layer.

where did you buy paper tape

I purchased it locally from a shipping supply company. Took a bit of work to locate it though as most of them had the kind that does not need to be moistened. There are mail order resources in the class materials though. Good luck with yours when you make it:)
