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
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.
