Wheat paste

I had planned to stay home anyway, but the rain made the decision that much easier. I took advantage by whipping up a craft that's been on my to-do list for a long time: wheat paste.

The paste is flour, sugar and water, cooked into a gelatinous goo. To test it out, I made a sample pinata (which refuses to dry out) and pasted a couple of magazine pictures and a charming letter from one of my third-grade pen pals on the wall. I'm waiting to see if the paste attracts more bugs than we already host. If it doesn't create a disaster, I'll collage every empty surface. I figure I should take advantage of having a house where I can glue random crap all over the walls, right?
