This instructable will show you how to make fake poop using some newspaper and flour.

You will need the following things:

1.- Flour 
2.- Newspaper
3.- Water
4.- Brushes
5.- Paint (white and brown)
6.- Lacquer (optional)

Step 1: Making Glue With Flour and Water

The poop is basically made of newspaper. To glue it together we will mix flour and water and cook them. The amount of water and flour depends on how many poops you want to make but use twice the amount of water than of flour. While you cook them, the water will evaporate and your glue will become more solid. Always use a tiny flame and keep mixing continuously.
The consistency of the glue can be like the shown in the photos or be more liquid, both will work just fine.

Step 2: Making the Poop

First, tear the newspaper in the shape of stripes. Then, spread the glue all over the newspaper stripes and twist them to get the shape you want your poop to have. Work while the glue is still fresh because it will become harder over time. Think how your are going to use the poop and give it the appropriate shape. I made four different ones, a classical cartoon-like-poop, one that looks like half falling from an edge (you will se why :-) ), a steeped one (I actually walked over it once to give it the correct shape),  and a normal one.
Finally, wait a few hours until your creations are dry.

Step 3: Paint Job and Done!

Paint your poops white first, it will help the brown paint to look more realistic. Actually, I used two different brown colors to make them look even more realistic.
If this a one-time-prank just let them dry and you are ready!
If you want keep your masterpiece and prolong his life for future pranks, you should lacquer it. Lacquer will make it shine a little bit and help the paint stay on it.
