      Classroom Paste

      1 cup non-self-rising wheat flour
      1 cup sugar
      1 cup cold water
      4 cups boiling water
      1 tbls. powdered alum
      1/2 tsp. oil of cinnamon (optional)

      1. Combine flour and sugar in a large pot. Slowly stir in cold water to form a paste.

      2. Slowly add boiling water, stirring vigorously to break up lumps.

      3. Bring mixture to a boil, stirring constantly, until thick and clear.

      4. Remove from heat and add alum. Stir until well mixed.

      5. Add oil of cinnamon if paste will not be used immediately.

      Makes 1 1/2 quarts.

      How to Use it: Classroom paste is a good all-purpose paste, especially appropriate for work with children. It is also excellent for papier-mache projects.

      Stored in a closely capped jar, this paste will keep for several weeks.

      It keeps longer then Paper Paste and is a little softer. If it gets too thick it can be thinned with hot water for easy spreading.
