Hello! Here's our regular feature where we share tips, tools & techniques that have caught our eye, things we have Pinned, and things we have tried. These are probably not going to change your life(!) but might make it a bit easier...
I have seen pins on Pinterest for a while now about making your own version of glues, including types of homemade Mod Podge.... so thought it was about time to give it a go! The 'recipe' I tried was based on this post by Ways & How
Start by mixing your ingredients in a saucepan: 1 cup water, 1.5 cups flour, 1/4 cup sugar, 1/4 tsp oil and heat on a medium heat.
Stir regularly and simmer for about 10-15mins (but make sure you don't let it boil!). At this stage you can change the consistency by adding more water (or flour to thicken). I added more water as it seemed to be quite thick!
Now I don't know if I did something wrong along the way, but my mixture seemed a bit lumpy... so I sieved it. I made plenty of mess, but it did the trick!!
Let the mixture cool down and pour into a suitable container e.g. jam jar.
And there you have your own budget glue ready to use! Have you tried any other recipes to make your own glue?
Can I ask why make your own glue when glue is so cheap?ReplyDelete
It was something we'd seen around and thought it would be fun to try out!! xDelete
Wow! Does this actually work?! xReplyDelete
Have only tried it on paper.... but so far so good!! xDelete
Glue may be cheap but Mod Podge isn't. I'll be giving this a try. ThanksReplyDelete
