Air-dry bak­ing soda clay

Good - - HANDMADE -

2 cups bak­ing soda 1 cup corn­flour 1¼ cups cold wa­ter Put the dry in­gre­di­ents in a medium-sized pot and add the wa­ter, mix­ing to­gether us­ing a wooden spoon un­til smooth. Place over medium-low heat. As the mix­ture warms up it will start to bub­ble, then quickly start to thicken. Stir the mix­ture con­stantly as it starts to so­lid­ify and clump to­gether. Re­move the pan from the heat as soon as all liq­uid has dis­ap­peared and the mix­ture re­sem­bles the con­sis­tency of soft mashed potatoes. Scrape down the sides of the pot while the mix­ture is still warm and turn all the dough out onto a clean sur­face. As soon as the dough is cool enough to touch, knead it to­gether into a smooth ball.
