While this is heating, mix 1 cup cornstarch with 1/2 cup water in a separate bowl then add to the warm mixture in saucepan, stirring quickly. Let cool.    This stuff works great! You can model it, sculpt it, or whatever. It isn't as stiff as regular clay, but it holds it's shape well. It takes about 2 days dry depending on thickness. by MamaSallyG
