Stencil of Plovers by Atsuko Yoshida
Japanese rice paste: Rice flour mixed with rice bran and lime.
Chinese stencil paste: Soy flour and lime.
Indonesian paste: Ground nuts (peanuts) and lime called katjang batik from Batavia (Djakarta), recipe from a citation in a "A History of Dyed Textiles" by Stuart Robinson, MIT Press, 1969, p. 74.
I used "Skippy" peanut butter mixed with lime.
