PAPIER MACHE GLUE

You will need:

  • 1 heaped dessert spoon of corn flour
  • Water
  • A mixing bowl
  • A kettle

What to do:

  1. Boil one liter of water.
        
  2. Put the corn flour into the mixing bowl and, while mixing, gradually add a small amount of cold water until the corn flour becomes a smooth, creamy paste. 
       
  3. While mixing, gradually pour the boiled water into the corn flour paste.
     
  4. You can start using the glue when it is cool enough to touch. To use, tear sheets of newspaper into strips and dip them into the glue.
