2 cups baking soda

2 cups water

Step 2: Steps

Place the baking soda and cornstarch in a pan

Watch the clay and continue stirring because it will burn very quickly
When it gets the consistency of mashed potatoes, stop the burner and place on counter
Knead the clay ontology silky and place in plastic bag for storage

Lmbo!!! People on here are incredible. Even after 2 yrs they still make me laugh.....

@drinkypoo - are you on medication? The person who posted this is not Trademark infringing, as 1) this recipe is not being passed off as the original Sculpey clay and 2) there is nowhere on here where this person is asking for money or asking for anything that would induce personal gain. Maybe you should lay off the drinkypoos???

Is there anyone share prodcuts using the materials made by this recipe?

how long do i bske it for and at ehat temperature

This might be a good clay recipe but it's very misleading to compare it to sculpey in any way. I found that it rose and cracked during baking and burned easily. Also it does not have the flexibly of sculpey and would/could not form any small details. For simple projects or for kids this may be a great recipie but I'd suggest something else for anything more complex.


thanks! I have used a variation of this recipe for years! I put white school glue in with the water in equal amounts. it works well. I also have separated it into smaller amounts & added food coloring...never had a problem.

Thanks for the tip about adding glue and food coloring into this particular recipe. :)

Sculpey is made from PVC (poly vinyl chloride) with a plasticizer added to it. I met the inventor once. He came to my home and when he and his wife saw how much of the stuff I was working with he told me not to touch it with my hands any more without gloves - and to eat lots of vegetables.

Huh? I'm pretty sure you never met the inventor of Sculpey.
