Do you remember how many objects you can make with baking soda fimo?
Unlike the salt fimo, this one turns out white and smooth which makes it look almost like porcelain.
Today we’ll see how to make a beautiful bowl.
DIY N. 11
BOWL MADE IN NATURAL FIMO PASTE (BAKING SODA)
100 ml water – 200 g baking soda – 100 g corn starch or cornstarch – lace fabric – rolling pin – kitchen scalpel
First of all, let’s prepare the paste:
In a pan pour the water and add baking soda and corn starch.
Put the pot over medium heat and, only when it begins to thicken, start mixing with a wooden spoon,
Mix thoroughly, so as to remove any lumps that might form, until it is compacted.
Remove the pan from the heat and let the dough cool a little, before you start working it. Place the dough on the worktop. If on the inner edges of the pot, starch has remained attached, do not add it to the rest. Work the dough with your hands until it is soft and compact.
Warning: if the soda paste is not processed well it may crumble a bit, it will need to be heated in your hands before working it. It is recommended to leave the dough rest for 24 hours before using it to create objects. It can be kept for almost a month if well wrapped with film.
How to create a bowl:
Roll out with a rolling pin the moldable soda paste or das to a rather thin thickness. Press small doilies over the dough and form a circle helping you with the outline of a bowl. Dry the pasta in the air, resting it on a bowl or a plate to make it take its shape.
When it is dry, finish the edges by passing some sandpaper.
Your bowl is ready!
