5. In 1/3 liter (1 1/3 cups) of water, cook 7 oz of rice or rice flour over low heat. You can also use leftover rice that has already been cooked. When the rice is overcooked, the starch it naturally contains will dilute in the water.
6. The liquid thickens and whitens. Add a little water if necessary and reheat the mix. Filter the glue and let it cool. Shake before using. You can protect collages or drawings with a coat of this glue. Though white when moist, rice glue becomes transparent as it dries.
