    What is an international equivalent of Elmer's white glue?

    I am not certain there is. I would suspect that Elmer's White Glue is sold worldwide under different names that are licensed by the Borden company. Just a guess. To be totally honest, I have no idea.

      I can find it in the UK.  I made a Hub with a recipe that uses Elmer's white glue and a reader wants an accessible solution.  I am having a hard time finding one.  Thanks for the thoughts.

      I am not exactly what you are trying to do but based on your Silly Putty comment, would something like rubber cement with some liquid paper added to it do the trick. You can warm the rubber cement to thin it out. Use a fresh bottle of liquid paper.

      Elmer's white glue + liquid starch = substance very similar to silly putty.

      That would work for paste but, alas, not in a silly putty recipe.

    Why not just put "white glue"? Elmers does not exist in many places, but everywhere I have lived  they sell white glue.

      That is just the answer I was looking for.  If white glue is universal I will change it to that.

    This has a list of other generic names for the glue you're talking about, "PVA glue" might be a good neutral choice. I usually say "school glue" when I don't want to mention the brand name Elmer's or Borden, but that's just me.  I suppose to be on the safe side you could list all the possible names an international reader might use for it.

      Even better for an answer!  I didn't know PVA and Elmer's were the same thing.  I will be reading that after dinner!  Thanks!

    Melted horse carcasses are, I think, the international standard for Elmer's...

      Awesome... add to hub... get one horse carcass, boil it until you get white glue.  Add liquid starch.  Now you have silly putty.
