inkblot keychain

Gah. we finally made an inkblot keychain!!
nope, its not for sale..
tsk.tsk.tsk. as much as we want to sell it, we can't. Since we can't afford to make more copies!
yeah. we don't have the fund.
sad. don't worry. maybe in the future we may be able to sell something.
--- pwomise! pwinky swear!

for those inkblotters who want to make their very own keychain, here's the procedure:
**its pretty easy. and if you don't like the recipe for making the clay. perhaps, you can still
look for other recipe in the net. there's a thousand ways to make your very own keychain.!

  • 3/4 cup white glue
  • 1 cup cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons mineral oil (I used baby oil but reportedly even vaseline will work)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • Non-stick pot
  • Wooden spoon
  • Add cornstarch to glue in a nonstick pot. Mix together and then add mineral oil and lemon juice. Blend well.
  • Cook over low flame stirring pretty much constantly (you can take a quick break or two if your arm gets tired, which it will) until the mixture resembles mashed potatoes.
  • Remove from heat! Squirt a little additional mineral oil around the top of your mashed potato mass and with your hands, remove it from the pot. Knead until smooth. It's best to do this while it's still as hot as you can handle. 
  • Pull off a bit to work with and put the rest in a re-sealable plastic bag with the top about half-way open until it's cooled down a bit. Then seal the bag (with as little air in it as you can) and store in the fridge.
  • Let dry about 2-3 days, then paint, or not.

** if you don't want to go through the troubles of making the clay for your keychain, you can just buy it off the market or the internet. Whichever suites your style.
