hollow form drying

>How does one go about drying a wet hollow form? I have my own technique of wrapping it in newspaper and then in a trash bag with alot of holes. Set it in the garage rafters for 3 months and its ready to finish. However here is the question, all my hollow forms done this way always warp. Some almost to unpresentable and some less. Is it the wood or is it my drying method? Anyone have any input. My walls I think are pretty even throughout and I usually turn midsize to about 1/8 or max 1/4". Thanks for the help.
