Glue Paste for Bookbinding

Mixed Media Art Questions for Milliande


I have started on my first altered book sticking with Acrylic Medium but have read in a book binding book how to make paste with either wheat starch or instant rice I so far can only find this in the USA very cheap but of course postage is over the top. Cant find any in this country on the net. What are you thoughts on this. Thanks Jean

Wheat Starch can be bought in supermarkets or specialist food stores that carry chinese food ingredients ..

here is an online supplier

I wonder whether they might have instant rice as well ..but have not heard of that before ..

For Bookbinding however I wonder how archival that is .. Ie because it is not created for art specifically does it actually " go off" as it were?
I presume in the olden days a lot of those products were used sucessfully in traditional bookbinding techniques.. but they books created with such a glue were probably no very longlasting yellowing with age and going brittle .etc

If it is for an altered book journal that is not meant to be kept or an heirloom etc.. I would give it a go , if it is meant to be sold or passed on I would prefer Archival bookbinding glue


Hope this helps
