Japanese Cement Or Rice Glue
Mix rice flour with cold water, to a smooth paste, and boil it gently.
It answers all the purposes of wheat flour paste, while it is far
superior in point of transparency and smoothness. This composition, made
with so small a proportion of water as to have it of the consistence of
plastic clay, may be used to form models, busts, basso-relievos, and
similar articles. When made of it, they are susceptible of a very high
polish. Poland starch is a nice cement for pasting layers of paper
together, or any fancy articles.
