Playbox Wheat Paste is made from real wheat and contains no preservatives. It's perfect for making papier mâché, or for any project that calls for paper paste. It mixes easily, and it's non-toxic and non-staining.
Shipped in a powder form, Playbox Wheat Paste has a long shelf life when stored dry. Users should only mix enough paste for the project at hand, however, since the wet paste will spoil if not used immediately.
Playbox is a trademark.

Comments about Playbox Wheat Paste:
I shopped around for some basic wheat paste to use with mixed-media collage and had not heard of this product before. I wondered if it would hold up to a professional result. After using it for two major artworks, I am totally satisfied with the performance. It mixed nicely, although I had to screen out some lumps — but that is to be expected. It worked well when used alone for a papier-mâché type of effect, but also as a compatible base for my custom recipe that includes white glue and acrylic medium. It is a very white adhesive that accepts tinting, too.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I tried to use this for paste paper and had to play with the mixture to get it to work. I still have to work on it.
My product came to me ahead of schedule--thanks.

paper mache wheat paste
from Mantua Ohio
Actually my wife Sheila bought this product for me at my request.I make paper mache sculptures ranging in size from nine feet to smaller sizes. I have made an eight and half foot big foot and several super hero's. I have been donating the sculptures to a local library and the kids love them. This product is the best I've ever used. It mixes smoothly and applies easily. This type of product is not sold,to my knowledge,locally.Shipping was prompt. I will eventually buy more of this from you. Ken Zander

Wheat paste for poster backing
By Professor Affiche
from Bloomington, IN
I use this product for backing vintage posters. The paste is barely acidic on the Ph scale, and I buffer with 10% calcium carbonate by weight. It works very well for my application and is hard to find elsewhere. The price has gone up steadily over the past two years, but it's still a sold value.
from Northeast Iowa
I used the wheat paste to hang vintage wallpaper. It worked very well. The cost was better than other wheat pastes I researched online, ordering was easy, and it arrived very quickly. Will recommend.
