Thank you for the kind words everyone. Sorry I didnt realize there were new posts in here .. well, i shouldn't say new, some are from last year (oops) but better late than never. Thank you.
Undeadvoodoomonkey - lol moisture.. such a nice way to describe non stop day after day rain we can get in the pacific northwest.
I actually haven't had issues with moisture seeping into/ruining mache. Mr. Dench has spar varnish under his paint. He was out in the rain a few times and has suffered no ill effects.
