Easy Homemade Sculpting Clay

"In a salad bowl (or non-stick pan) mix 3 cups of white glue and 3 cups of cornstarch. Add one tablespoon of white vinegar, one tablespoon of glycerin*, 2 tablespoons of canola oil." See here for remaining instructions. The results are called cold porcelain. Image from esprit cabane site.

The link mentions that glycerin can be found at crafting stores; however, I get mine at Walmart or drugstores in the vitamin aisle. The store brand or off-brand is very inexpensive.

HT to Tipnut for leading me to this site.

We've been using this for our clay this year. The kids love to work with it, it's inexpensive, and produced great looking projects. People that see the dried projects try to figure out what it is.
