Thanks to Pinterest I have discovered some wonderful ‘new’ recipes!
This lovely baker’s clay from woodsidekitchen.blogspot.com is cheap and simple to make,
smooth and easy to work with,
comes out the oven white and hard,
and looks pretty even un-painted!
We used our normal play-dough cutters,
and I gave the girls our rubber stamps to use for texture and embossed designs.
Here’s the recipe:
1/2 Cup Corn Starch
1 Cup Bicarbonate of Soda
3/4 Cup Water
* Mix all ingredients together in a pot.
* Stir over heat until the mixture thickens and resembles thick mashed potatoes (really!)
* Remove from the stove and place as a ball in a bowl and cover with a damp cloth until it cools.
* Roll out, cut, shape and decorate.
* To make the holes we used a drinking straw – press down, twist, and lift, then blow out the little centre into your hand to re-use the with the scraps.
* Bake@ 180○ C for about 10 minutes or until firm and hard.
* Cool and paint, varnish, or enjoy as is.
Great for Xmas decorations, place-name settings, gift tags and gift embellishments.
Give it a try!
