DIY Modeling paste for mixed media collage quick , easy , cheap

I am very excited because I have been playing around with homemade modeling paste. It is quite fun to use stencils and slather on some white paste on a collage page and lift off the stencil and see the magical white impressions on the page. I got this home made recipe from a video by gauchealchemy on you tube. It works great and it saves soooo much money to make it yourself. So here is the recipe ( you can also look up the video if you want to see it made) one air tight container one part white acrylic paint one part talc powder baby powder ( $1 at the dollar store) 1/2 part white glue or mod podge ( this is what I used) It will end up with the consistency of frosting ( do not eat it lol) stir a lot ….. put stencil down on heavy weight paper and spread the paste over the stencil and lift straight up. Wait to let it dry or dry with your heat gun. Wash your stencils and utensils right away, this stuff dries hard. Just look at the photos to see how easy it is.
