To prepare this DIY glue you need three ingredients: cornstarch, white wine vinegar and water.
To start preparation it is necessary to take two bowls; in one will be mixed a spoonful of water with one of white vinegar; in the other bowl mix about 180 ml of water (slightly less than a medium glass) with 100 ml of cornstarch (half a glass).
The mixing operation between water and corn must be done with great patience as it is necessary to obtain a homogeneous mixture, without lumps and semi-liquid. After this operation, place the water and the vinegar in the bowl in a small saucepan and heat. To this liquid the paste of water and starch should be added gradually.
