Paper Mache?

I'm new to this forum and so happy to have found it! I recently discovered that my son and I are gluten intolerant. My son was properly diagnosed with a couple of blood tests but the doctor wanted total confirmation, by putting him back on a diet with gluten for 6 months and then conducting an intestinal biopsy.

My husband and I opted to forego the 6 months of torture to our little guy and just went ahead and began a gluten free diet for him.

I react to topical gluten! I was at the salon last summer and had a cut and style. On the way home I started itching and burning, and discovered an angry red rash, but only on my left arm and left calf. It made no sense... until I realized that my left arm and left calf were exposed when my stylist was spraying hairspray on me. I liked the hairspray so much that I had bought a can of it when I paid. I whipped that can out and read the ingredients and whaddya know? Wheat starch was like the fourth ingredient! So yeah, it's totally possible. (And the salon let me return the hairspray for a full refund. :P )

Here is a link to a recipe that uses corn starch, water, and glue (elmer's):

We did a paper mache school project, and all we used was one part water to one part elmer's and it worked fine . . . so well, that we can't seem to throw it out as my son is quite attached to it.
