Paper templates

I had used paper templates many years back to build forms in sculpture, so I thought I would bring it back to produce functional forms. The top two I will have to remake, they froze in the freeze the other night. I've tried several things to see if I can salvage them, but I don't see any future for these two. Anyway, I've got the templates. I have put together several of the forms and I was able to document the process I have used. I hope to have it up tomorrow. Stay warm and don't let them pots freeze.

That's too bad these froze -- wonderful pots. Does your paper hold up to many uses? Will you post more on the process?

The paper has been coated, I still have some from way back, they were made with thin platic, like from a greenhouse. The paper holds up fairly well, I will probably throw them away , before they wear out. I have published the process I use on the blog. Let me know if I have left something out or that I have not made clear.
