Making glue


Making glue
Originally uploaded by mum21andtwins



I'm preparing a batch of glue for some ghost jars Euan & I will be making tis afternoon. Thought I'd share the pattern here.
2 tablespoons of cornflour
1 tablespoon of vinegar
1/2 tablespoon of sugar
and enough water

Put everything except for the water in a pot on the stove add a littl ebit of water to get a paste.
Turn the cooker on on a low setting and very slowely add more water. It will soon start to thicken.
When you can see the track a spoon makes when you pull it trough the mixture for a few seconds before it dissapears again you've got the right consistency.
Cool it and put it in a jar.
Keeps in the fridge for awhile I've had it for 2 weeks and it was still good.

  1. Leuk idee, zelf lijm maken! Ik maak altijd pinjata's voor verjaardagen (papiermaché) met kranten en lijm van bloem en water. Werkt super voor papiermaché.
