DIY Air Dry Clay

Smoother, finer and less sticky than traditional clay, this special air-dry clay needs no oven or kiln to set. The easy-to-use clay softens with water and cleans quickly from hands and surfaces. Air-dry clay can be used with traditional techniques such as pinch, coil, slab and score-and-weld to make a huge range of projects, including stamped impressions, beads, and embedding found objects. The white clay can be painted with tempera, acrylic or watercolors when dry.

4 ounces of cornstarch
4 ounces of glue
1 tablespoons of vegetable or baby oil
1 tablespoon of lemon juice or white vinegar

STEPS
1. Add ½ cup of cornstarch, then 4 oz of glue.
