Paper glandes
May 24th, 2019 at 1:46pm
 
I have made some glandes out of paper and water. After that I let them dry. I have noticed that they "flake off" after 3 seconds of being slung. To solve that problem I simply wrapped them with scotch tape. Now my question is, is there a better way of keeping them intact?

Thanks for the suggestion Smiley I use paper because they're safe and "malleable", plus I get the paper from my old notebooks, and another plus since it's summer here in the Philippines I got all the time in the world! Cheesy

    Other members have mentioned paper ammo in the past.  I can see how it would be useful for indoor slinging practice.  For safe outdoor slinging I usually use tennis balls.

papermache is what you want.

Old newspaper is the best material as it's very absorbent.

Cheap wall paper paste is what most people use for paper mache.
Also very cheap and easy to use.

You make up some wall paper paste, mix it with shredded newspaper to form a thick mouldable matrial. mould and let dry.

    When I was in the Cub Scouts we'd make paper mache  with chopped up newspaper.  For a binder we used just flour and water.

Oh and before making the glandes do note that they lose 40-60% percent of their original size
