The trick to this recipe is to use the stickiest variety of rice you can find, like Lundberg Organic California Sushi Rice. And then don’t rinse it—the starch that you’d normally be washing down the sink is what makes the glue work. It’s perfect for paper and projects, such as bookbinding and collage.

4 cups water
1 cup unrinsed rice
1. Bring 4 cups water and 1 cup unrinsed sticky rice to a boil. Lower the heat, and simmer until it is porridge-like, about 45 minutes. Cool at room temperature, then process in a blender, adding more water to loosen as needed, until smooth.
2. Store it in the refrigerator, and apply it with a brush.
