Re: [BKARTS] Paste for Paste Paper

That makes sense! Thanks! Do you have a brand of rice flour paste to recommend?

For paste paper I use rice flour paste colored with
acrylic paints. The acrylic paints have stable
pigments, discourage the growth of bacteria so that
the colored paste keeps for several weeks in the
refrigerator, and make the surface of the finished
paste paper slightly water resistant so that there is
only minimal rubbing off of the color onto hands and
tools when the paste paper is moistened by glue or
paste during the construction of books or boxes.
