How to Make Paper Mache Paste at Home

How to Make Paper Mache Paste at Home

Hello friends! I imagine that I will be doing Paper Mache regularly with my children since they enjoyed it so much this time. I was searching online and discovered that authentic paper mache paste requires some cooking - we definitely didn't have time for that. So, I decided to make a separate page describing how to make the paper mache paste that worked so well for us today - no cooking involved!

  • 1/2 Cup Flour
  • 1/3 Cup Icy Cold Water
  • 1/4 Cup Half School Glue Half Water Mix
  • 1 Tablespoon of Salt
  • Mixing tool
  • Container to make the paste in
Here's what you'll need - I took the pic after we had already poured in the flour!

  1. Mix all of the above ingredients into your container 
    The boys love pouring and mixing!

  2. Mix thoroughly until you get a nice paste consistency. If it feels too thick you may need to add a bit of water - try a tablespoon at at time.

  3. Test out the consistency of the paste on your paper mache project it should be a nice, soft, spreadable paste. 
There's the magic recipe for the perfect paper mache paste! Let me know in the comments how it worked out for you.
