Art Recipes : Paste Paper Glue Recipe

Use this paste paper glue recipe to make a batch of glue a day before making those gorgeous paste paper.

Paste Paper Glue

Supplies Needed :

half cup cornstarch

3 cups water

1 teaspoon liquid dish detergent

half teaspoon glycerin (optional)

Instructions :

1. Place the cornstarch in a saucepan.

2. Add a little water and stir.

3. Put saucepan on medium heat.

4. Add in remaining water.

5. Stir constantly while heating until the content becomes like thin custard.

6. Remove from heat.

6. Add the liquid dish detergent and glycerin. This will keep the paste smooth and pliable.

7. Put aside to cool.

8. Pour through a sieve to assure that the paste is smooth and not lumpy.

9. Cover and leave overnight.

The glue will thicken when left overnight. Just remove the thin layer that formed on top of the glue and add different color acrylic paint; one color in each plastic cup.

Tips: Add more paint since the paste will look lighter on the paper.

Dish detergent - make paste smoother.

Glycerin - keeps paste from drying out too quickly.
