Corn flour clay pengiuns

Today we made corn flour clay penguins to go with our arctic winter topic. The clay is very easy to make and has a nice smooth texture. It is easy to manipulate. All the girls enjoyed modeling with it.

Cornflour clay
1 cup cornflour
2 cups salt
1 1/3 cups cold water

Put salt and 2/3 cups of water in a sauce pan and bring it to boil. Mix rest of cornflour with remaining water and stir well. Blend the two mixtures and
knead into clay. Mould the clay and let it dry for several hours, it can then
be painted.
It can also be baked in the oven at 95oC  for 1 1/2 to 3 hours depending upon it's size.
