Flour and water glue

I was on my Papier Machie craft project when i ran out of glue ! This is not what you want when you are fully obsessed with your new idea! 

I thought of more fun :) and decided to make my own glue out of flour and share my recipe of homemade glue with you .,.,

It is easy and non-toxic.
You will need flour and water.... 

To make a flour and water glue follow these instructions:

Boil 5 cups of water in a saucepan.

In a bowl, mix 1/4 cup of sieved flour with a cup of cold water. Mix to a smooth consistency (a bit like making custard). When completely free of lumps, add the mixture to the water in the saucepan. Gently boil, stirring constantly for two or three minutes until the mixture thickens.

Allow to cool before using.

This will make a runny glue. If you prefer a very thick glue (or if you are in a hurry for it to dry) use this recipe instead:

Thick flour and water glue:

Use 1 whole cup of flour to three cups of water. Make using the same method as above.

you can cool it by placing it in ice.
use it as you wish. :)
