That's right you read the thread title right; water quenching. Now some of you are scratching your heads and thinking "what in blue blazers is he babbling about?" Well I made a little wild discovery this week that dipping lightly glued parts into warm water for a moment or two then immediately dry it with a heating utencil (a dryer) then let it set for a little bit then I notice the paper is a lot more rigid and isn't prone to tearing when I shape it. Now to some you may think this is obsurd and have caused moisture damage. Well...maybe. Just remember this is something new I have discovered in the past 24 hours. I am sealing it and painting it thoroughly to slow down the moisture damage if there is any, I made sure it was bone dry after "quenching" it. I like to say that maybe the water helps the glue absorb into the tiny pores in the paper or something but I noticed that the paper did not tear as easily as before once it was completely set and dry where it would have done it without quenching it in water. Your thoughts or your nasty rebuke that I have gone stark raving mad.
