What did you do while it was snowing? March 19, 2007

I made this really cool modeling clay that air hardens. I found the recipe on WhipUp.net via the StudioCAM blog. It’s super easy to make, it feels sooooo wonderful in your hands, and cleans up pretty well too. It does dry the hands out if you play with it for hours, but a little soap and water, and hands are back to normal.

Here’s the recipe:

  • 1 cup cornstarch
  • 2 cups baking soda
  • 1 1/4 cups water
  • Heat over medium heat, stirring constantly until it forms a big ball. Turn out onto a board and knead once. Let it sit and cool off. Once it’s cool enough to handle have fun! Keep the unused portion in aluminum foil or a sealed container. For this to dry properly, poke holes in it (could be whiskers or eyes or dots….) and let sit. Depending on size and thicknesss, this dries pretty quickly!

I made beads and Izzy made a “shmoo” (remember …) . I’m going to have Izzy paint the beads later and we’ll string them up as necklaces for her grammies.

So – what did you do while you it was snowing? Post a comment here!
