    Hi:

    It the same for Paper Mache here are mine :

    Paste

    1 cup cold water

    1 cup flour

    2 1/2 cups boiling water

    1 T. powdered alum

    3/4 tsp. oil of wintergreen

    Mix the cold water and flour together, stirring until smooth.

    Add the boiling water and mix well. Pour the mixture into the top of a double boiler.

    Cook over low heat until smooth. Add the alum and stir.

    Remove from heat. When the mixture is cool, add the oil of wintergreen.

    ======================================...

    Paper Mache Recipes:

    Use one of these 3 Paper Mache Recipes:

    Recipe 1/ Ingredients: Flour,water,paper

    Stir three parts water into one part flour until the mixture is smooth and creamy.

    To make the paste last longer, add a few drops of oil of Wintergreen. (optional) You can buy this oil at a drugstore.

    Stir well and the paste is ready to use.

    Now you need paper- newspaper works well!

    Dip each piece of paper in the liquid mixture and apply it one piece at a time to form your shapes.

    Recipe 2/ Ingredients: Wallpaper paste,water,paper

    Buy some wallpaper paste at a hardware store.

    Mix one part wallpaper paste with three parts water.

    Stir well and the paste is ready to use.

    Now you need paper- newspaper works well!

    Dip each piece of paper in the liquid mixture and apply it one piece at a time to form your shapes.

    Recipe 3/ Ingredients: Glue,water,paper

    Mix two parts white glue with one part warm water.

    Stir well and the Paste is ready to use.

    Now you need paper-newspaper works well!

    Dip each piece of paper in the liquid mixture and apply it one piece at a time to form your shapes.

    ======================================...

    To make the paste:

    1/2 cup all-purpose flour

    2 cups cold water

    2 cups boiling water

    3 tbsp. sugar

    Mix together flour and cold water in a bowl. Add this mixture to the boiling water and allow it to return to a boil. Remove from heat and stir in the sugar. As the mixture cools it will thicken as it does.

    You can also just make a quicky paste by putting flour in a bowl and adding water until you have kind of a soupy paste.

    If you're planning to make something you want to last for years and years, be aware that flour paste can get moldy, especially in humid environments. You might want to try using powdered wall paper non-pourous adhesive (Note: please read waring on carton) mixed with water. It comes in milk carton type containers and you can find it anywhere wallpaper is sold.

    Be sure to cover your work area with lots of newspaper or wax paper - papier mache can get very messy!

    To make your shape:

    Tear (don't cut) narrow strips of newspaper or newsprint. Narrower strips work best when using a rounded mold... for flat or rectangular surfaces, larger strips are ok. Dip the strips into the paste, coating completely. As you lift the strip out, run it between your thumb and forefinger to squeeze out excess paste. Then drape the strip across your mold. Overlap strips slightly as you go - the torn edges will blend together and your final product will have a smoother finish. You may need more than one layer of paper. It's best to allow each layer to dry before putting another on - this means some projects could take several days!
