"Not positive about this, but would a UV filter on your lens help? Don Carlson was telling me that he could take the shine off of his clay by using a filter on the lens.  It could be worth a try."

"Be generous with the white glue coating layers, and I would add some white glue into the plaster mix. Helps to make it stick and strengthens the plaster. I have used the polyurethane type glue on Styrofoam, the sort that foams as it sets. Very…"

Dennis Heinzeroth replied to Adam Taylor's discussion Glue for styrofoam
"Yes, regular old white glue. The size of the stuff we were doing required us to buy it in gallon sized jugs, lol. Don't forget to add in dry time. I'd brush it on as thin as possible to speed that process up. The thicker it is, the longer…"

"Thanks Eric and Dennis!  Just to clarify, by "white glue" are we talking about Elmer's or equivalent? So far spray adhesive and hot glue are working and since I don't have any white glue on hand I haven't been able to…"
