It is necessary to take paper from Florence, which is the finest, and crush it and and soak it several times and change the water every day, that way it does not smell bad. And after having moulded it into the hollow, put a cloth over it, and from the back side, rub the back of your paper with a sharp piece, as if you wanted to polish it and it will mould very neat. Then glue some cloth from the back side with strong glue.
