Online I find tons of recipes and would like some recs for one that will work best for a pinata. I am making the Death Star for my DS's party in a week. It will be about 2 feet in diameter. Need a recipe that will be solid enough to be able to be hung up and withstand a few hits of a bat. Thank you!

i used white craft glue added some water to thin it a bit and newspaper. many layers then the last few i did white paper then painted on it. added crape paper streamers for hair i made a huge dora head with a balloon. best of all it held up great it took lots of hits from everyone.

We used a paper mache paste similar to this one for dd's pinata. We did two layers of newspaper and that thing was strong. It took many, many, many hits before it broke.
