Wheatpaste is a vital tool for any poor, young kid with a message. It’s cheap, effective, and easy to make. Just slop it on the back of a piece of paper, stick it on a telephone pole (or anywhere, it’ll stick to pretty much anything!) and that sucker won’t come down for months. Regardless of how stupid, obscene, or just plain odd it is, every passerby will have to see it!
Water bottle (or some other container to carry the paste in)
Material to post
First, pour 1 1/2 cups of water into a pot and one cup of flour to it. Stir. Then heat the mixture until it starts to bubble and thicken. Stir again. It might be necessary to add another cup or two of water if by this time it doesn’t look like a gray slime. Once it is thick and slimy, remove from the stove and add three or four pinches of sugar. Stir it for a while as it cools down. Pour it into the bottle before it starts to dry and cap it. Some people add wallpaper glue to the mix right at the end, but I don’t so I can’t give you a personal opinion on that. Try it if you want.
Now that you have the paste, go out and use it! Paint a layer of paste on a solid surface and lay the poster on, starting at the top and smoothing it down really well so it will be hard to remove. Then apply a light coat of paste on the poster to secure it to whatever surface you have chosen. Wheatpaste dries clear, so don’t worry if it doesn’t look quite right at first. That’s it, return to the site at a later date and admire your work.
