Default Ok, found one more for rice glue.

How to Make Rice Glue
Rice glue can be bought in an Oriental supermarket or made at home, and is used a lot in Japanese paper crafts and the making of kanzashi. It dries hard and almost transparent, and this recipe can be stored in a jar in the fridge.

[edit] Ingredients
1 cup rice
1/4 cup salt
3-4 (maybe more) cups water
{makes 2 cups of glue}
[edit] Steps
1. Combine all the ingredients in a saucepan and bring to the boil.
2. Lower the temperature and simmer for 45 minutes.
3. Notice that it should look a bit like oatmeal - if it still looks rice-like, add more water and keep cooking.
4. When it looks like oatmeal, remove it from the heat and let it cool.
5. Put it through a sieve to remove the larger pieces, or put in a blender (you might need a little bit more water).
6. Store in the refrigerator
