Paper Mache Glue

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by MSR5055

Works a treat for paper mache, just use paint brushes to get it on! We usually add a bit of food coloring so that we can see where we have painted it on.

This is the only recipe I've ever tried, so I have nothing to compare to. Easy to make, it goes on easy, cleans easy. It is not incredibly sticky, but I kind of like that for the kids. I make this often!
