Depends.....if you are doing this in foam, you may get away with it. May. Just pin down the templates so it doesn't move around when you trace it out.....If you are doing fiberglass, no way in hell will this work. Regular paper will soak up all the resin on the first layer and then collapse under its own weight. That is why we us the card stock or 110 lb paper. It is much thicker and will not implode when the resin is applied.
