If you paint a Paper mache-d Pepakura armor, will the dried Paper mache not malform when the paint dries?

i used a few good layers of the mache mix. my mix was almost a 4 ounce thing of basic white glue like elmers and bout half cup of water and kept making it thicker after each layer dried.
then spray painted it.
