KinderArt - Art Kitchen: Baking Clay II
BAKING CLAY II
Submitted by: DonnaPs23
Here's a baking clay recipe that kids can use to make terrific sculptures.
- 2 cups baking soda
- 1 cup cornstarch
- 1 1/4 cups water
Cook over med heat stirring constantly until mixture is the texture of mashed potatoes.
Knead well by hand.
You can cut this "clay" with cookie cutters or use small molds.
Air dry for approx three days or bake on 175 degrees until firm (depends on thickness of
I usually bake about 40 min one side and then turn and bake on
You can add food coloring to the clay to make it colored, or
paint with acrylics once hardened.
I use this clay to make pins, charms, etc.
Normally I paint the projects and shellac them. These are easy and inexpensive. The dough will keep for 2
or three days in a plastic bag, but best to use right away.
