Bookbinder’s Paste

2 T flour
1/4 cup cornstarch
1-2 tsp powdered alum
2 cups water

Mix dry ingredients. Add water slowly, stirring out lumps. Cook in a double broiler over low heat, stirring constantly. Remove from heat when paste begins to thicken; it will thicken more as it cools. Keep covered and thin with water when necessary.
