Paste Recipe (for Paste Paper)
3T white rice flour

When just about to boil turn down heat and cook 2 more minutes. Add soap and glycerin. Cool. Will keep covered in refrigerator for a month or more.

Mixing acrylic paint in with paste No real rule here. The more paint, the deeper the color. The more paste, the paler the color.
Surface covered with paste/paint
First smack. I don't wipe it off just keep smacking. I can even lift one color in an area and add it to another spot.
I added this picture to show laying the smacker down ( lower left) on the wet paste/paint so that when lifting it makes the smack impression.
