No-Cook Paper Mache Paste Recipe

This is definitely the easiest paper mache paste recipe you can make. All you need is flour, water, and a large bowl. Of course, you will also need a spoon or whisk to stir up the mixture.

Ingredients Needed:

  • Water
  • Flour


To make this paste, simply mix together 1 part flour to 2 parts water. Pour the flour and water in a large bowl and stir it well. Keep mixing until there are very few lumps left. You want it to be runny like a white glue, not thick like paste. Add more water or flour as necessary.

A few helpful tips I have read in regards to using this paste are:

  • If you live in an area with high humidity, add a few tablespoons of salt to help prevent mold.
  • If you don't like the smell of the glue mixture you can add a few sprinkles of cinnamon to sweeten it up!


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