A measuringcup
A small bowl or cup to mix the coldwater/starch solution in
A whisk
And finaly the Starch which in this case, since iam in sweden is potatostarch

En kastrull
Deciliter matt
En liten skal att blanda potatismjol och kallvatten i
Potatismjol

Step 2: Measuring the water

Measure up about 4 deciliter of water in your pan.
Put to boil on the hob while you preapre the next step.
If you cant be bothered to bring it to a boil on the hob just
a electric kjettle and heat the water while you hvae your
pan on a hot plate

Mat upp 4 dl med vatten i kastrullen.
och koka upp det medans du forbereder nasta steg.
Anvand vattenkokare om du inte orkar koka upp det pa
spisen .Sla bara pa plattan och stall pa din kastrull och
hall sedan i det kokande vattnet fran vattenkokaren i kastrullen

Step 3: Measuring and mixing your starch

Take about one and a half tablespoons of starch
and mix with about half to one deciliter or so of cold water.
Be sure to stir out any lumps until its smooth.
Dont be tempted to take more starch than this because
you willl end up with something akin to Jello

Ta ungefar en och en halv matsked med potatismjol
och blanda med ca en halv till en deciliter vatten.
Blanda noga och mosa ut eventuella klumpar
tills det blir jamt.
Fall inte for frestelsen att ta mer potatismjol an sa har

Nice instructable! but does any of you guys know how to preserve the starchglue for a longer period of time? 
The recipe used here is equivalent to
  • Boil 1 2/3 cups water.
  • Dissolve 1.5 tablespoons potato starch in 3 to 7 tablespoons of cold water.
  • Rapidly stir the starch into the boiling water, then cool.
It's good that you mentioned cornstarch. We grow crazy amounts corn here in the US, so corn starch is extremely cheap.

A difference from potato starch is that corn starch does not reach quite the same thickness and will begin to thin again if it is boiled for too long.
