  • I would construct a plastic sleeve (e.g. garbage bag and tape) around the glass tube before I put paper mache on it. Especially depending on the glue you use the paper mache will stick more or less firm onto the glass tube. It will be much easier to get out if it doesn’t.

    Also you will be able to take out the glass tube if it is straight. If there are bends in it, obviously not without cutting your paper mache.
