    Bring 1 litre (1 quart) water to a boil in a cooking pot. Spoon the corn flour paste into the boiling water then continue to boil the solution, stirring constantly, for one more minute. Remove the mixture from heat.

  3. 3

    Stir in 1 tbsp white vinegar to prevent the homemade glue from become mouldy in the container. Allow the glue mixture to cool completely.

  4. 4

    Pour the corn flour glue mixture into a plastic container with a lid and store it at room temperature.

Tips and warnings

  • Glue made with corn flour can be used for any paper crafts and, when thinned with water to a soup-like consistency, can be used for papier mache.
