Creativity & Lost Arts & Crafts

HOMEMADE PLAY DOUGH

  • 2 1/4 cups non-self-rising wheat flour
  • 1 cup salt
  • 1 tablespoon powdered alum
  • 4 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 cups boiling water
  • food coloring or poster paints for color ** I use gelatin aka Jello, it doesn't turn your kid's colors and it tastes better when they eat it... you know they will.

Combine flour, salt, and alum in a bowl. Add vegetable oil. Stir in boiling water. Stir vigorously with a large spoon until mixture holds together. Knead the dough until it is smooth. Divide the dough into several lumps. Add a few drops of food coloring, poster paint or jello to each lump and knead to mix the color into the dough. Makes about 3 cups.

HOMEMADE SLIME

  • 8 ounces of white glue
  • Acrylic paint (craft paint) in your favorite color
  • Several cups of water
  • Borax laundry booster
  • Large airtight container

Combine the glue, 4-5 tablespoons of the acrylic paint and 1/4 cup of water in a bowl.

In a separate bowl mix 1 tablespoon of borax and 1/4 cup of water. Pour the borax mixture into the glue mixture and stir until you get a good blob. It may look a little stringy but it will firm up. Form the blob into a ball and place the blob into the airtight container, mashing it down slightly.

Keep making batches using different colors until all of your glue mixture is used up. Put each into its on container.

Making Inkjet Fabric Sheets

This is a great idea for making crafts using transfers from old family photos or clip art. You can make quilts, pillows, wall hangings, whatever else you can think of.

Make your own fabric sheets by ironing a piece of 100% cotton fabric to freezer paper. Trim to 8 1/2" x 11". For best reproduction of color and detail, we recommend using a smooth fabric with a thread count of 200 or higher.

Trim all threads around the edges before printing.

If you cannot print your fabric sheets immediately after constructing them, we recommend that you store them flat in a plastic bag. When you are ready to use, re-iron the sheet to be sure that the paper adheres to the fabric before printing.

An alternative to using the freezer paper method is to use a full size laser adhesive label (one label per sheet) for creating fabric sheets. Position fabric onto sticky side of the label. Trim to 8 ½" x 11". Adhesive labels can be reused several times before they no longer stick to fabric.

Most inkjet inks are water soluble. If you want your image to be colorfast, it will be necessary to pre-treat your fabric with a fixative like Inkjet Bubblejet Set This product is available at both retail and online craft and quilting stores.

You might try setting the image with vinegar, but do a test sheet before you get too involved in the big project.
