Clay recipes

These recipes are great when you need some clay to make snowman noses and you don't have Sculpey clay!

Recipe # 1:
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/4 cup baking soda

Mix all the ingredients together and cook over medium heat, stirring until a ball forms. This will happen quickly! Remove it from the pan and mix thoroughly with your hands. Put in zipbag and seal; DO NOT Refridgerate. Air dry and do not bake.

This 2nd recipe results in quite a bit of "clay" and smells nice with the cold cream.

Recipe # 2:
3/4 cup white glue
1 cup Cornstarch
1/2 cup water
1 tsp. cold cream
1 tsp. glycerin

Mix wet ingredients until smooth over meduim heat. Cook for a few minutes, add Cornstarch. Stir constantly until it forms a ball. This doesn't take long!
Remove from pan and mix thoroughly with your hands. Cover with plastic or put in a plastic bag and seal. Do Not Refridgerate! Air dry and don't bake.

The first clay recipe will give you a "clay" which is very dense white in colour while the second recipe has an almost translucent quality.
