Full Answer

  1. Mix tylose powder and water

    In a small bowl or container, mix 1/4 teaspoon of tylose powder and 2 tablespoons of warm water. It is best to stir the mixture with a fork or hand whip, as this helps break up the lumps. However, even if the mixture is a bit lumpy, it is still effective.

  2. Cover and refrigerate

    Place the mixture in the refrigerator, and let it sit overnight. The following day, the glue should be clear and have a syrup-like consistency. If it is too thick or too thin, simply stir in more water or tylose powder into the mixture, and put it back into the refrigerator to let it cool.

  3. Apply with a paintbrush

    After the mixture is complete, use a paintbrush to apply the glue to the designated area. Allow the glue to dry slightly before sticking anything to it.
