Make Your Own Modeling Clay

handmade clay flowers

Clay #1

2-1/2 cups flour
1 cup salt
1 cup water

Mix all the ingredients together. If you don't plan to use the clay right away, you can store it in the refrigerator in an air-tight container or plastic bag.



Clay #2

1 cup salt
1 cup flour
1 cup water

Mix all the ingredients and cook over a low heat until the mixture thickens. Allow to cool before using.


Clay #3

1 cup cornstarch
2 cups bicarbonate of soda
1-1/2 cups cold water

Combine all the ingredients and cook over medium heat. Stir constantly until the mixture is dough like. Cover the clay with a damp cloth and allow to cool. Coat finished products with a shellac to seal and preserve.


Clay #4

1 cup salt
4 tablespoons oil
2 cups flour
4 tablespoons cream of tartar
2 cups water

Mix the ingredients and cook over a low heat. Stir constantly until the mixture becomes stiff and comes away from the sides of the pot. To prevent this clay from drying out, store it in a closed container or plastic bag.


Clay #5

2 cups salt
1 cup cornstarch
waxed paper

Dissolve cornstarch in enough cold water that the mixture will pour easily. Slowly add it to 1 cup of boiling water and stir until the mixture becomes thick and transparent. Pour the mixture onto a cookie sheet that's lined with waxed paper and allow to cool.


Clay #6

2 cups flour
1 cup salt
2 Tbsp vegetable oil
3/4 - 1 cup water

Mix the flour and salt together. Slowly add water and stir until you achieve a stiff clay-like consistency. Once you create a sculptered clay item, bake it in an oven at 250³ for approximately 1 hour. (To get a golden appearance, glaze your item with egg yolk prior to putting it in the oven.)


Clay #7

7 pieces of white bread
7 tsp school glue
1/2 - 1 tsp water
1/2 tsp dish soap

Remove all bread crust and break the slices into small pieces. Mix the bread and glue thoroughly. Add water and dish soap and mix until a clay-like consistency is achieved.
