Great for those too hot summer days – make decor for your rooms or get a head start on Christmas gifts.

Here’s what you’ll need…

• 1 box baking soda (about 2 cups)
• 1 cup cornstarch
• 11/2 cups water
• Sauce pan
• Bowl
• Spoon
• Plastic wrap

Here’s how you make it…

1.Mix all the ingredients in a saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring consistently, until it is too thick to stir with a spoon.

2. Cool for 15 minutes, or until the dough is cool enough to touch. Knead it for about 5 minutes, or until smooth. Keep dough wrapped in plastic.

Once you have molded it, it will take 1-2 days for the clay to dry. The length of time depends on how thick your craft is: If it is a flat ornament, it may only take 1 day, if it is thick it will take much longer. This clay can be painted with either Tempera or acrylic craft paints.

    Kind of similar to salt dough. But with salt dough you don’t need to cook. Just mix and make it into anything you want, and leave dry. Then paint your project. I still have small ornaments that I made over 20 yrs. ago using this method. I got it out of a Christmas project book.
