    I have read several places about a craft clay that you can make at home that uses white glue along with some other ingredients. they call it polymer clay.Does anyone know that recipe? Where can I find it?

  3. Crafter Clay Lady says

    For people looking for a polymer clay (air dry) recipe:

    – 1/2 cup White Glue (School glue)
    – 1/2 cup Cornstarch
    – 1/2 teaspoon lemon (to act as preservative)
    – Hand or Body lotion
    – Microwave safe mixing bowl
    – Spatula

    Place Glue, Cornstarch, and Lemon in bowl, mix until smooth. Microwave on high for 30 second intervals until the mixture forms a heavy dough and darkens lightly in color. When the clay becomes very sticky and difficult to knead, let cool and add lotion into the dough in teaspoon increments. Knead the lotion in until the clay as a smooth consistency and glossy appeal.

    Store in an airtight container- clay pieces will take 24 hours to cure under 1/4 inch thickness.

    Clay will dry translucent unless color is added- food coloring, alcohol based pigments (like permanent markers), pastels, or acrylic paints can all be worked into the clay without problem.
