CRAFT KITCHEN:Make your own self drying Modeling Clay (not edible)

Everyone love to use clay, sometimes we want to make models we can paint later! here is a great handmade clay to use! This will dry very hard and makes great beads, just remember to poke holes in them if you want to run a string through them later!

You will need:

1 box baking soda (pound)
1 cup cornstarch
1 1/4 cups cold water
Food coloring


Let us begin:

Mix baking soda and cornstarch together in a sauce pan

Slowly blend in water to avoid lumps

Heat over low heat until it begins to look like mashed potatoes

Remove from heat and turn out on a damp towel. Place another damp towel on top or wrap in one

Allow to cool enough to handle

Use or store in an air tight container

Clay will dry at room temp like many self drying clays, so keep a damp towel on top of clay not being used.

If you plan on painting or stringing allow to dry overnight, uncovered.
