How to make CornStarch Clay


1/3 cup cornstarch
1/4 cup white glue
Mix completely.  Add extra corn starch or glue to get a workable consistency.
Store in plastic baggie.  Should last for months with no mold.
WHY make this?:
  • Projects can be air dried.
  • Dries like china or fine porcelain
  • You may color, but will have to decrease the glue content a bit or need to add more starch. It is also possible to paint after dry.
  • Applying hand cream before working it will create smoother creations
  • Skewer to create beads
  • Dries in 2 days or cures in oven (Heat to 350 degrees then turn off and place in oven while it cools
  • Can also be used to make rigid molds, they will create smaller pieces than original due to shrinkage
Options are limitless! You can find many more recipes online and tips galore. I hope this has helped get you started and given you some ideas.

  • Try rolling out very thinly, then leave over night.  In the morning use punchies to create designs before it is completely dry.
  • Expect up to 30% shrinkage as dries
  • Spray finished project with clear fixative to resemble porcelain
