How to Make Japanese Rice Paste

paste recipe

Japanese rice paste is a transparent library paste used to mend torn pages of old books.  Cut a piece of white tissue paper the size and shape of the tear. Spread Japanese rice paste over the tissue and lay the tissue over the tear.  The paste will be transparent when it dries and the tear will be mended. Japanese rice paste is also perfect for tissue paper collages and scrapbooks. Your kids will enjoy making this Japanese rice paste as much as they will enjoy using it for their paper craft projects. This recipe makes about 1+1/2 pints of Japanese rice paste.

Step 1:  Gather the following ingredients to make Japanese rice paste: 3/4 cup rice flour (look in the diet food section of the grocery store), 2 tablespoons sugar, 3/4 cup cold water, 2 plus 1/2 cups boiling water, 1/2 teaspoon oil of cinnamon.

Step 2:  Mix the rice flour , sugar and the cold water in a medium size pot and stir until smooth.

Step 3:  Add the boiling water and bring to a boil over low heat stirring constantly. Heat and stir until the mixture thickens.

Step 4:  Remove from heat and add the oil of cinnamon. Stir until well mixed.

Step 5:  Store the Japanese rice paste in a tightly sealed jar. Do not refrigerate.  This paste will keep for several months.
