Serendipity Experience 77: Make Clay Ornaments

7:45 AM



My daughters and I decided we would attempt to make our own white clay ornaments this year. It was such an easy and enjoyable task!

We have used the ornaments to decorate our presents, wine glasses and even our Christmas Wreath!


How to make White Clay

Making these decorations only requires 3 ingredients
                                         2 Cups Bi - Carb Soda ( Baking Powder)
                                         1 Cup Conflour     ( Cornstarch)               
                                         1 1/4 Cups water                                       
                                    
Mix ingredients in a heavy pan and place on stove stirring until
                                 it reaches boiling point. Remove from heat and place a damp  
   cloth over bowl until cool. Place into small balls and roll between
                                 two sheets of baking paper. Cut out shape with cookie cutter and
                                stamp with a suitable Christmas stamp - our say's "no peeping"! 

   

We tried two seperate methods for drying, placing in an oven for 10
    minutes and just air drying them for two days. The air dried ornaments
were definitely better as they did not distort and were far whiter than
  those dried in the oven
