How to Use It: Classroom paste is a good all-purpose paste, especially appropriate for work with children. It is also excellent for papier-mache projects. Stored in a closely capped jar, this paste will keep for several weeks. It keeps longer than Paper Paste and is a little softer. If it gets too thick it can be thinned with hot water for easy spreading.
Your CLASSROOM PASTE is ready. Good luck!
