I got this recipe from FamilyFun magazine and have used it on numerous craft products. The texture is so smooth, totally non-toxic, and not sticky like other papier mache recipes.


  1. Combine flour and cold water in bowl.
  2. Add this mixture to 2 cups boiling water in saucepan.
  3. Bring to a boil again.
  4. Remove from heat and stir in sugar.
  5. Let cool.
  6. Will thicken as it cools.
  7. Once it thickens and cools it is ready to use.
  8. Dip newspaper strips in papier mache and take off excess.
  9. Allow to dry several hours, till stiff.
