Making Clay Goddess Figures
Merry Meet :))))
Something fun to work with is clay. :))) It's very easy to make and you can do soooo many things with it. It's a fun project to get the kids engaged with as well.
What You Need
- 1 Box baking soda (about 2 cups)
- 1 cup cornstarch
- 1 1/2 cups water
- sauce pan
- saran wrap
Mix all the ingredients together in a saucepan. Cook it over medium heat, stirring constantly. It's done when it becomes too thick to stir with a spoon.
Let it cool for about 15 nihutes, or until you can touch the dough. You then want to knead the dough for about 5 minutes until it is smooth.
You can then mold it into whatever you like. I showed some Goddess figures above, but you can also make other items that are of significance to you, runes or whatever you like. :))
Put them somewhere safe to let them dry. It can take 1 - 2 days depending on how thick what you made is. You can then paint it however you like. Tempera or acrylic craft paints work best. :)))
Love and Blessings,
