Colored Glue Recipe
From your About.com guide, make your own fancy, colored glue.

Cooked Paper Mache Paste Recipe
This paper mache paste recipe that requires some boiling, is a little stronger than the no-cook version and always seems a little smoother to me.

Cooked Paste
This paste recipe is good for paper projects and it will last for a long time if you keep it covered and in the refrigerator.

Lick and Stick Glue Recipe
Make this glue and apply it to the back of magazine pictures, photo copies, or other pictures; and then let it dry. When you are ready to use the picture, simply lick (or moisten with a dab of water) and stick! This recipe gives you enough glue for dozens of home-made stickers/stamps.

No-Cook Paper Mache Paste Recipe
This no-cook paper mache paste recipe is a good one to make with kids because it is easy to make and does not require heat.

No Cook Paste
This glue is just a simple mixture of flour, water, and salt, but it is usually my first choice when it comes to paper projects. It is quick and gets the job done!

Resin Paper Mache Paste Recipe
This paper mache paste dries to a very hard finish to make your finished projects more durable.

School Glue Recipe
Make up a batch of this plain, white glue to have on hand whenever you need it.
