Ingredients
  1. 420g bi carb soda
  2. 300g water
  3. 100g cornflour
Instructions
  1. Place everything in the bowl.
  2. If you want coloured clay add the colouring at this stage.
  3. Blitz on speed 3 for 1 minute. You want this to be well combined.
  4. Cook on 80 degrees, seed 3. It will take approximately 6-10 minutes to thicken. You want it to thicken to the point it looks like a very firm mashed potato. You want it coming away from the sides of the bowl in a dough like manner. Cook for a little longer than 10 minutes if needed. Just keep an eye on it.
  5. Once thick and dough like, remove from bowl and place onto some baking paper in a ball or pancake shape.
  6. Place a wet cloth over the top until cooled.
  7. Once cooled you can mould it.
Notes
  1. You can air dry this clay or bake in an 150 degree oven for a few hours until hard. I suggest baking it.
