This Homemade Glue is AMAZING! It’s my go to recipe for any paper craft but especially for paper mache projects! It’s so cheap to make and it dries clear.
- 1 cup Cornflour or Cornstarch
- 1 tablespoon of white vinegar
- 2 teaspoons of Salt
- 4 cups of Hot Water
Place all the ingredients in a medium saucepan and mix well with a whisk (there should be no lumps). Turn the stove top onto a high heat and bring the mixture to the boil. You will notice the mixture will start to thicken and turn translucent within minutes of boiling. Once the mixture is translucent you may take it off the heat to cool.
Watch this video to see the whole process –
Once it’s cooled down enough to touch you can use it on your projects. It does make aprox 4 cups of glue which is great if you’re doing a large paper mache project.
The glue can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for 3 months. It will turn to a solid Jelly once refrigerated – just remove the amount you need and add some Hot Water from the kettle until it resembles the thickness you need.
