Paper Mache glue
Total Time: 15 min
Prep Time: 15 min

Ingredients:
1cup Food Club All-Purpose Flour
1 cup of water

Directions:
Mix togethe 1 cup of flour with 1/2 cup of water. Stir it thoroughly with a fork or whisk, add the rest of the water until the mixture is the consistency of glue, a bit  runny and not thick like paste. Add more water or flour as necessary. Mix well to remove any lumps.

If you’re concerned about mold, add 2 tablespoons of salt to inhibit mold growth, and if the smell of this mixture bothers you add a pinch of cinnamon to sweeten the aroma.

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

old fashioned milk paint
Total Time: 1 day
Prep Time: 15 min

Ingredients:
1 quart Food Club Lowfat Milk
1 lemon, juiced

Directions:
Squeeze the juice of a lemon into 1 quart of low-fat milk in a large bowl. Leave it overnight at room temperature to induce curdling.

Pour the mixture through cheesecloth to separate the solid curds from the liquid whey. Color the mixture with acrylic paints, food coloring or natural dyes. Add your color a little at a time, and stir constantly until you achieve the desired hue.

Adding salt to the mixture will help to inhibit mold growth.

No matter how you color it, milk paint will spoil quickly, so it should be used as soon as possible. Refrigerating it between uses can extend its usefulness for up to 2 days. It smells sour when you’re applying it, but that will disappear once the paint dries.
