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.
