I’m old school when it comes to papier-mâché paste. Recently, I started adding a little baking soda and rice flour to the mixture, which seems to extend the life of leftover paste in the fridge:

  • 1 cup flour
  • 3 Tbsp rice flour
  • 1 Tbsp baking soda
  • 8 cups water
  • lots of salt
  1. In a large mixing bowl, add flour, rice flower, baking soda and 4 cups of cold water. Mix thoroughly until there are no clumps.
  2. In a sauce pan, bring 4 cups of water and plenty of salt to a boil.
  3. Add the cold mixture to the boiling mixture and stir.
  4. When the mixture starts boiling again, take the pan off the heat.
  5. Start dipping torn paper once the mixture is cool enough to work with your bare hands. Enjoy!
