actually I found that the first day you mentioned the paper dope. It's just... everything I've read about it tells me this is most assuredly NOT what I want to use for this. Everything I've read about it talks about it being used to shrink and tighten up Tissue paper. Since the cardboard I'm using is layered, wouldn't that mean it will warp the part since the outer layer(s) of the cardboard would be shrinking while the other layers wouldn't be?
It would be used on the edges only got get rid of the hairs, and make for an edge that could be filed easier. Shellac would work too, I guess. Since your not using tissue paper, you concern is not warranted. This stuff does not delaminate, it tends to brings paper together. If you found it the first day, why didn't you express that instead of your concerns about becoming a "dope head', and "Google' no bringing up anything on "dope". I suggest you buy a bottle and experiment with it. You may find a whole new hobby. This is the only way people here have found out stuff, by trying it out. Usually we share our results.
