Two recipes to make clay using sawdust.
This clay has a consistency of wood when dry.
What You Need:
- wallpaper paste
What You Do:
Mix the dry wallpaper paste with the sawdust (2 parts sawdust to 1 part wallpaper paste).
Add water slowly until you have a thick mixture.
Make shapes and let dry overnight.
You can sand the finished products and paint or stain them.
Alternate Sawdust Clay Recipe:
- 1 1/2 cups sawdust
- 1 1/2 cups soap flakes (if you can’t find soap flakes at the store, make some by shredding a bar of Ivory® soap into flakes).
Add small amounts of water to soap flakes and mix together until you have a thick mixture. Whip the soap until fluffy and stiff. Add the sawdust. Model the mixture into shapes and let dry for a few days.
