 8 tbsp. powdered paint

1 tsp. white glue

2 tbsp. liquid starch

3 drops oil of cloves (obtainable from any drug store)

 
INSTANT PAINTS

 
RECIPE 1

Mix a few drops of food coloring to a small amount of liquid

starch.

FINGERPAINTS

RECIPE 1

Mix 1 1/2 cups starch with enough cold water to make a paste.

Slowly add 4 cups of boiling water, stirring constantly.  Cook

until clear, avoiding too hot a fire.  While still warm, stir in

1 1/2 cups soap flakes.  Add 2 tablespoons glycerine.  Add food

coloring to portion which will be used immediately and store the

remainder in the refrigerator in a covered jar.

These paints work best on glazed paper such as shelf paper.

RECIPE 2

In a double boiler, mix 1 cup cornstarch (or laundry starch)

with enough cold water to form a smooth, thin paste.  Add 1 cup

flaked soap chips and 1/2 cup salt (which acts like

preservative).  Add 1 quart water and cook until thick (increase

amount of water if necessary).  Beat with an egg beater, and

place mixture in empty baby food jars, adding food coloring to

each jar.

One teaspoon glycerine makes mixture more pliable and easier on

the hands.  Vanilla or oil of cloves can be added to mixture to

create a nice smell.

RECIPE 3 ( no cook)

Mix 6 tablespoons dry laundry starch  with just enough cold

water to make mixture liquid and smooth.  Pour this mixture

slowly into 1 quart boiling water, stirring well until thick.

Add a drop of oil of cloves and mix again.  Divide into portions

(a muffin pan is a good holder) and add food coloring.

SOAP-BUBBLE-BLOWING LIQUID

Mix together gently:

4 cups water

12 teaspoons glycerine

8 teaspoons liquid tincture of green soap (available from

drugstore but as a substitute, grate or grind very pure toilet

soap and use 8 teaspoons of the resulting powder)

Let liquid stand for 24 hours before using.

SILLY PUTTY

2 parts Elmers' Glue-All

1 part liquid starch

Gradually pour starch into glue and mix.  If mixture is sticky,

add more starch.  Cover and refrigerate overnight.

Note:  This silly putty can be cut with scissors or be pulled or

twisted.

RECIPE 5 - VICTORIAN SALT CLAY

(can be used to make beads for necklaces)

Mix 2 cups salt and 2/3 cup water in a pan.  Stirring

constantly, heat over a low flame for about 4 minutes (Do not

boil).  Remove from heat.  Quickly mix 1 cup cornstarch and 1/2

cup cold water together and add this combination in one go to

heated mixture.  Stir and mix quickly.  If resulting mixture is

not a thick paste, place back on low heat and stir for about a

minute until mixture is doughlike.

Treat like bread dough - knead on flat surface until dough is a

smooth and pliable mass.  Can be stored in plastic or foil and

kept in an airtight container.

Color can be added when dough is being cooked or when being

kneaded, or modeled objects can be painted when dry.

It takes 2 days for a modeled object to dry at room

temperature.  For quicker results, preheat oven to 350 degrees

F, and then turn the oven off.  Place the model in the oven,

preferably on  a wire rack,  and leave inside until the oven has

cooled off.

For a finishing touch, smooth dry models by rubbing gently with

sandpaper or an emery board.

To make beads for a necklace, punch holes with a toothpick while

the clay is still pliable.  You can also string the beads

through a thin wire, letting them dry on the wire itself.

Clay can also be rolled out like cookie dough and cut with a

cookie cutter.

1 tsp. fuller's earth (available from drugstore)

1 tsp. plain yogurt

1 tsp. water

A few drops of food coloring

(Use lipstick and/or eyeshadow for these areas).

Make-up will wash off with water.
