Gluten-free Papier-Mache Paste
Papier-mache paste obviously is great for papier-mache projects, like pinatas. Warm it slightly before using it. It also can be thinned with water and used as a more traditional paste.
1 cup corn starch (gluten-free)
1 tablespoon salt
1/2 cup cold water
2 to 4 cups boiling water
Let's make it
Combine corn starch and salt in a large bowl. Next add a small amount of cold water and begin to stir. Keep adding water and stirring until you get a runny slurry. Add food coloring and extracts. Pour 2 cups boiling water into slurry and whisk away. Add more boiling water to get the desired consistency. It will quickly begin to set up. Cool. Add coloring and extracts.
