i recently used plain white flour (non-self rising!) water, cinammon
oil, and a little dash of elmer's white glue per bucket, and it worked
fine...the oil acts as a perservative, and the students said it
smelled like for wall paper paste: it contains arsenic
to kill the rodents that eat it, so it is a big NO NO.

Hi everyone --
Has anyone else had trouble getting wallpaper paste from local lumber
yards, hardware stores lately? I ran out of the supply I ordered from
Nasco, but I figured no problem I can just buy some. It's amazingly hard
to find! I think they've replaced most of the wheat paste with synthetic
stuff that says caution do not use with children.... I know flour and
water works, but anyone have any other ideas for an easy mixing paste for
laminated paper projects? Well, at least I now know to order plenty for
next year!!
