Cornstarch Creative Clay

Cornstarch Creative Clay
1 cup of cornstarch
2 cups baking soda
1 1/4 cup cold water
Mix dry ingredients into a sauce pan until blended. Mix in cold water - add food coloring if you do not want white clay. Cook over medium heat about 4 minutes. Stirring constantly until mixture thickens to a mash potato consistency. Cover with a damp cloth to cool. Knead the dough into a ball and create.
I made this fun little guy using this clay. The clay dried wonderful. It was nice and smooth and did not flake. My mom gave me the buttons, beads and the nose. Guess what the nose is? It is a mini Christmas light (the decoration kind) I think you will have a lot of fun with this clay. Sam and Atticus used cookie cutters to make snowflakes. We have not finished what they have planned to create, so be sure to check back and see.
Have a fun Saturday!
