Recipe for Textured Paste
Textured Paste
1/2 cup of baking soda
2 Tablespoons of Elmer's White School Glue
1 Tablespoon of Acrylic white paint - can add more
Mix and store in a class jar
Use on project and recommended to dry over night before using

When making the paste you can add more paint or glue or water to get the thickness you desire - I added a bit more glue as I felt the paste was too thick, however, there are people that like to use the thicker texture. I can see many uses for this paste - like clouds, snow, etc. This is my first time at using this wet medium - loving it!

NOTE: Baby powder can be substituted for the baking soda and Mod Podge can be substituted for the White Glue
