We have been experimenting with various paper mache glue recipes and come to the one we love. It is total eco friendly recipe which consists of strips of old newspaper, plain flour, water and a little bit of salt. To make the glue mix the mixture of plain flour, water and a little bit of salt until smooth with no lumps. Strips of old newspaper are then layered with this glue. Each layer is left to dry completely before adding another layer. Followed with sanding then applying gesso and painting. Lastly coating it with a final protective varnish.
