Did you know that you can make clay using cornstarch? Earlier this week I did a post that listed 37 Uses for Cornstarch and one of them was how to make clay. Prior to making the list I never knew that you could make clay. I had always thought that there was some scientific process behind it. Much to my surprise that isn’t the case. To make clay is a really easy process and you don’t need a science degree to do it.
You only need a few items that are probably already in your pantry: Cornstarch, Baking Soda, food coloring (optional) & water.
You simply add all of the ingredients in a sauce pan and cook it over medium heat, stirring constantly.
Continue stirring until the mixture holds its shape. Then place the mixture on a baking sheet to cool.
Once the clay is cool to the touch, begin kneading it on a cornstarch dusted surface. Continue kneading until the clay is soft and pliable. It’s now ready for your creativity.
