Homemade Embossing Paste Recipe (From France Martin.  Thanks France!)
1/4 c. cornstarch
1 T. inexpensive glue (Elmer's, etc.)
1 T. inexpensive white acrylic paint
1 T. water (approximately!)

Mix together cornstarch, glue and paint.  Gradually add enough water to make your paste spreadable (not runny).  Amount of water depends on thickness of glue and paint. Stir together until there are NO lumps.  Spread over stencil using a palette knife, spreader, old credit or gift card.  Wash off stencil, etc. right away.

For future uses, save leftover paste in an airtight container to prevent it from drying out. Creates a good white paste.  You can custom colour your paste with acrylic paints and other colouring mediums.
