If you’ve got cornstarch in your pantry, you can make liquid starch that’s a great adhesive and stiffener for crafts! I try to make sure to always have it on hand in my house. If I happen to run out, the great thing is cornstarch can readily found in the baking section of any local grocery store!

Materials:

Corn Starch

Water

Mixing Bowl

Whisk

Mason jar with lid or other airtight container

Instructions:

1. In a mixing bowl, mix 2 heaping tablespoons of corn starch into 1/2 cup cold water with a whisk to create an even slurry.

2. Stir in 2 cups of boiling water.

3. Once cooled, the liquid starch is ready to use.

4.¬†Store leftover mixture in a sealed mason jar for up to 1 month in the refrigerator. Be sure to label so it’s not mistaken for something edible, and include the expiration date!
