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.
2 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
2 quarts warm water
Natural flavored extracts or spices
Let's make it
Combine the flour and sugar. Add a bit of warm water to make a thick paste. Slowly add the rest of the water, stirring with each addition. Add food coloring and extracts. Boil, stirring continuously, until the mixture is thick and clear. Pour into the storage container.
