ALBERTO REYES

The traditional method of making paper mache adhesive is to use a mixture of water and flour or another starch, mixed to the consistency of heavy cream. then , paper , brown bags or newspaper strips are glued together with this adhesive mixture. A alternate mathod of making paper mache adhesiveis to create a mixture of water and Almidon  (a starch produced in Mexico ). Almidon  is stirred into boiling water to create the consistency of thick gelatin , this becomes Engrudo which can then be adhered to any form of paper , perfect to make those brightly colored Mexican piñatas.
