While this is not as easy to clean up or kid friendly as the No-Cook and Cooked paper mache paste recipes, this is a good paste to use if you need your finished project to be strong because it dries to a very hard finish. This paste is good to make projects you want to last for a long time, not for making a pinata!

Ingredients Needed:


Before you use the directions I share here, read the package or container your resin glue powder comes in to see if they have different directions.

I would suggest using an old pot and an old wooden spoon or whisk for this project. To make this paper mache paste, start out by putting 3 cups of water in a pot and bringing it to a boil. While you are waiting for it to boil, mix the 1 cup of flour and the 1/2 cup of powdered glue resin together. Slowly stir in 1 cup of very warm water. Once it is all blended together, beat this mixture briskly to remove lumps.

Once your pot of water is boiling, slowly stir in the flour mixture. Mix well and let it boil for 2 - 3 minutes or until it is clear and smooth.

You should be able to store this glue in a covered bowl or jar, in the refrigerator, for a few days.
