Resin papier-mache paste lends a hard finish to papier-mache projects. The paste especially suits the creation of large papier-mache crafts, such as furniture, bowls or wall art. Your kids will enjoy making resin papier-mache paste as much as they will enjoy using it for their crafts. This recipe makes about 1 pint of resin papier-mache paste.
Things You'll Need
- Glass jar and lid
- 1/2 cup wheat flour (not self-rising)
- 1/4 cup powdered resin glue
- 1/2 cup warm water
- 1 1/2 cups hot water
- 4 drops of cinnamon oil
Mix the flour and resin glue in a saucepan.
Add 1/2 cup of warm water to make a paste, mixing well.
Add the hot water while stirring vigorously to prevent lumps.
Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture is thick, clear and smooth.
Add the cinnamon oil to act as a preservative. If you are using the resin papier-mache paste immediately, you do not need the cinnamon oil.
Store the papier-mache paste in a covered glass jar. The paste will keep for several weeks if you added the cinnamon oil. Do not refrigerate.
