1 C Cornstarch
1 1/2 C water
16 oz Baking soda
Combine cornstarch and baking soda in a large saucepan. Stir in water and cook over low heat until the mixture begins to thicken and form a ball. Remove from heat. Dust the countertop lightly with cornstarch and turn the clay out of the saucepan. When cool enough to handle knead the clay until smooth.
Store the clay in an air-tight container or plactic zipper bag. Clay is reay for use when completely cool. Can be stored refrigerated for up to 2 weeks.
Make figures by modeling to shapes or rolling about 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick and use cookie cutters. Allow to air dry for several days (a cooling rack speeds the process) or bake at 300'F for 25-35 min.
Decorate the dried figures with paints, markers, and glued on decorations like glitter.
