A warm Hoosier Welcome

It has been a while since this Hoosier gal has posted anything. Am trying to get back in the groove . Will be posted sewing, decorating and crafting tips. I like frugality, using what you have in your present stash.

A RECYCLE CRAFT SUPPLY

DRYER  LINT  CLAY

Now, for those of us that love to create , thrifty with our money, and save the earth, well here is a unique clay that works well!
You will need:
3 Cups Dryer Lint                      2 Cups  Water
5 Drops of wintergreen oil (but you don't have to use this)
1 Cup Flour
Put lint in a saucepan. Cover with oil and water. When lint is saturated add the flour.  Stir until smooth.
Cook over medium heat.   Stir constantly till peaks form and holds together.
Pour in onto a newspaper to dry.

Now you can model with it.  Put unused in a plastic bag. Will only last a couple days this way.  Dry finished modeled product for 5 days.
ENJOY
Susan

This sounds interesting! Have you worked with it before? We have sooo much dryer lint at school, as we wash and drya a load kitchen towels at least twice a day!

Happy Weekend ~Natalie

Hi Natalie
Yes, I used this years ago. I didn't use the wintergreen oil. But was thinking, how about cinnamon oil or vanilla. That would make it Prim Country!.

Thanks Susan. I'm gonna save this recipe and try to make something with it. Don't know what yet, but something primitive I hope:) Carol
