Papier-mâché recipe (Revised!)
This page explains how to make paste.
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
- In a large mixing bowl, add flour, rice flower, baking soda and 4 cups of cold water. Mix thoroughly until there are no clumps.
- In a sauce pan, bring 4 cups of water and plenty of salt to a boil.
- Add the cold mixture to the boiling mixture and stir.
- When the mixture starts boiling again, take the pan off the heat.
- Start dipping torn paper once the mixture is cool enough to work with your bare hands. Enjoy!
