    I found a recipe for making rice glue, I read it is used a lot for Japanese paper craft & for making kanzashi (traditional Japanese hair ornaments).

    I was wondering if anyone has used it & how it performs as a glue or even a protective coating?

    I have now found a few recipes, some are complex some are simple, I don't know if different brews give you different qualities.

    here is one that is simple

    I made some Teka Maki from scratch, and threw a rice ball, around the diameter of a nickel at my girlfriend, it really stuck onto her forehead! :)
