Air Hardening Modeling Clay (Makes about 2 pounds – 0,9 Kg)


  • 2 cups baking soda
  • 1 cup cornstarch (cornflour)
  • 1.5 cups cold water

Mixing Cornflour with baking soda will get us a smooth and pliable clay that we can play with. The original color will be white but we can paint it with any food coloring or even painted it once it hardens.

Set a pan on the stove, place your ingredients and stir until smooth. On medium heat stir until boiling and make sure you don’t have any lumps left. Clay consistency will look like mashed potatoes.
Let it cool on a plate covered with a slightly wet kitchen towel. Sprinkle your work surface with cornflour and when your clay is cool down start kneading until you have a pliable mass.
