AWESOME recipe, thanks.

We just made some, and my son asked if it will shrink like salt clay. Does this clay shrink much while it dries?

No, it wont shrink. when you store it in the zip-lock bag it will not dry.

Yes, this clay can mould easily. Just add a water to mold this. You can use this for make mini statue, toys or anything. This clay is good for a weeks if you store it into the zip lock bag.
