I have wanted to do this for years and have been searching for paper tape ever since! Where did you find it?

You can get wet able paper tape from art stores ... Don't know if it is the same as the one used in this project but Dante's why it wouldn't work

I want to do something like this as well. I've been toying with the idea of using paper mache to make it though...what did you use for yours??

It's papertape that we had to get wet. I did this in a class I took so I don't know where they got the tape.

I made a dumm at an adult education class run by the local council. Made of cloth based duct (duck) tape and stuffed with newspaper. Then made a cover for it with wool type fabric, looks great. I put a zip up the back so that I could change or wash it etc.
