These recipes are great when you need some clay to make more snowman noses and you don’t have any more 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 happens quickly! Remove it from the pan and mix thoroughly with your hands. Put in Polybag and seal; DO NOT Refridgerate. Air dry..don’t bake.
This 2nd recipe is also very nice…because my glycerin also contains rosewater and the coldcream has a soft scent as well the clay smells pretty. This recipe results in quite a bit of “clay”.
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…don’t bake.
Both recipes are air dry.
Also…from checking on mine a few minutes ago…I can tell you the recipe for number 1 will give you a “clay” which is very dense white in colour while the second recipe has an almost translucent quality about it which I really like.
