Glue is added to the paper pulp as a binder. In some cases mud or flour was also added to achieve rigidity and solidity.

One of the first references to papier-mâché dolls is in Fournier’s “History of Children’s Games.” “The first dolls used a mixture of clay, paper and chalk called ‘carton-pierre’ (literally ‘stone cardboard’).”
In the area of Germany this material was known as “cardboard-pâté” (cardboard paste or papier-mâché) where it was poured into the molds of the dolls.
In the. XVIII it was discovered that papier- maiché dolls could be produced en masse, by a process of pressing the dough made into molds on the parts of the dolls.
It was assumed that this process was introduced to Sonnerberg from Paris, laid the foundations of large industry. Walking Doll Blonde
