    Would you be willing to write up a quick summary of the recipe that you decided on. Nothing special, just the outline with a little more detail. i.e. Some measurements if you have them, and heating-time if you use it. Thanks a lot.


    • hi James,

      Here’s the recipe, as I remember it (with some more specifics)…

      -bring 2 cups of water to a boil
      -pour boiling water into a mixing bowl
      -slowly add white flour, 1 tablespoon at a time, mixing continually, until the consistency is close to that of a smoothie

      Of course, you can adjust as need be, but the key is to add the flour slowly, and a little bit at a time, so you have better control of the consistency.

    How do you reuse wheat paste after you refrigerate it, right now i have a solid lump of the stuff i tried adding water and nukin it in a microwave neither worked, did I just make a bad batch or is there another way

    • James

      Eh, mine kind of tends to do that too, but the paste still seems to work allright. I usually try and mix a litttttle bit of warm water with it and then just spread it onto the wall or paper in big globs. The stuff that I pasted back in February that wasn’t removed is still up. Give it a shot and tell me what you think.

    • I haven’t even tried refrigerating wheat paste, because from what I read when researching it, the paste won’t keep for long. However, if you only refrigerated it overnight, it should still be fine… Usually, I’ve just made small batches, but I’ve kept some for a few days in the fridge.

      James, when you pasted with refrigerated paste + warm water – is the stuff that has been up since February?

      • James

        Yeah, I used the refrigerated stuff for the paste-ups done in february. But I had used it before that around a year ago for another paste-up that is completely faded, but still up.
