Dryer Lint As Modeling Dough


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

Since you most likely have it in abundance, use it to make homemade modeling dough. Simply mix the lint with water and flour (and, if you prefer, food coloring), as directed below for an ear-resistible sculpture of Dumbo.
(See next page)

To make the modeling dough:

1.Place 3 cups (shredded) dryer lint into a pot.
2.Pour in 2 cups water.
3.Stir in 1 cup flour.
4.Add teaspoon vegetable oil.
5.Stir continuously over low heat until the mixture binds together and is of a smooth consistency.
6.Pour onto a sheet of wax paper
