Wheat paste is a gel made from wheat flour or starch and water (various recipes exists). It has been used since antiquity for various arts and crafts such as bookbinding, collage, papier-mâché, and adhering posters and notices to walls. A critical difference among wheat pastes is the division between those made from flour and those made from starch. Vegetable flours contain both gluten and starch. Over time the gluten in a flour pastes cross-links, making it very difficult to release the adhesive.
