Thursday, April 9
10:00 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.
Make your own air-dry clay in advance of this class with a simple recipe. Kids will then use their homemade clay to create a unique indoor sculpture they can hang in their room.
This class will meet via Zoom.
Air dry clay: recipe, butter knife, popsicle stick, paints, small container of water, paper plate, news print or other mat to work at, yarn or string for hanging, metal wire will also work.
Air Dry Clay Recipe Options:
1 cup cornstarch
1 cup school glue (Elmers)
2 tablespoon vinegar (or lemon juice)
2 tablespoon vegetable oil
Mix together wet ingredients (glue, oil, and vinegar) in small bowl. Add cornstarch until evenly mixed. Use microwave in 15 second intervals stirring your concoction. It should begin to look fluffy like marshmallow fluff, just after that it will begin to stick to itself when stirred. If hard, too dry, add more water and repeat. (if you don’t have a microwave, preheat oven to 350-400F, and set in oven stirring every 5 minutes until fluffy then sticking together)
Alternate recipe, not as malleable:
1 cup flour
2 teaspoon cream of tarter
½ cup salt
1 table spoon vegetable oil
1 cup water
Blend together dry materials, make a well in center, add water and vegetable oil. Work dry and wet ingredients together until all mixed. Use additional flour to knead dough for 5-10 minutes until consistent. Use enough flour to keep from sticking, but too much will make dough dry. I use oil on my hands to keep from sticking.
Registration closes 12hrs before start of class. An email reminder will be sent out to registrants before class with Zoom link.
