Cornflour clay is an interesting alternative to salt dough. The uncooked dough is bright white, and silky to touch. The finished creations are paler and finer than salt dough. We used ours to create some hanging decorations - ideal for a Christmas tree.

Heat gently, stirring all the time.
After a few minutes, the liquid should start to thicken. Remove from heat as soon as it starts to thicken enough to be able to stick together and form a ball.

Allow to cool to room temperature.

The dough can now be rolled out and stamped with cookie cutters or modelled into shapes. We used a straw to make a hole in our hanging decorations.

Bake gently in a low heat oven (around 100 degrees Celsius for about an hour) until the items have dried out.
When cool, tie a ribbon through the hole in the shape to create a hanging decoration.
