Just be careful when using Thymol. It can be hazardous to your health and
is unnecessary if you use the paste immediately. Those of you concerned
with preservation will probably not wish to use it at all, as the chemical
is then in your paste next to your paper until the paste is removed.
You can also cook wheat starch paste in the microwave to get smaller "one
day" amounts without having to do the "double-boiler, stir-forever-routine."
Some people find it easier. Some people don't like the working
characteristics of microwaved paste.
