Self-hardening mass. Experiment with the starch, flour and acrylic adhesive

  • Dec 28, 2019

Friends, Hello!

I decided to conduct a little experiment for the production of self-hardening mass for sculpting or molding in Molde. I have already done a similar mass, which also turned out routine experimentation. The last time wrote about a super simple recipe for self-hardening "plastic", a polymer glue and starch. Today something similar, but with a different adhesive.

For the manufacture of weight I used:

· Acrylic glue "Liquid Nails";

· Corn starch;

· Flour;

· Plastic bags.

Glue "Liquid nails" can be different in composition, I was acrylic. Corn starch is not required, it is possible and potato.

Be sure, when mixing the mass wear gloves, do not take an example from me. I was wearing gloves is not easy to work, so without them.

Variant with starch.

Step 1.

On a newspaper he poured small pile of starch and glue squeezed from the tube. I began to mix the glue with starch.

No proportions not, how much glue take a starch, so many need. Clay different firms for different density, so the consumption of starch is always different.

Knead until needed, until the mixture stops sticking to your hands. And yet, it is not necessary to mix a large amount at once, because the mass becomes quite hard and just can not have enough forces.

Step 2.

Once the dough is ready, remove it in the bag for 5 minutes, which would be sold in the starch adhesive.

Step 3.

Weight ready for operation.

Weight is well molded, easily molded in Mold and various molds, it holds its shape well.

Option with flour.

Step 1.

As in the first embodiment, sprinkled flour, squeezed glue and carefully knead.

Step 2.

I put in the bag for 5 minutes.


Mass of flour has turned almost the same as that of the starch, only a little more rigid. Too well molded, it receives and keeps any form.

Drying left both options for a few days. After 3 days, such as the glue has dried, but the "Circuits" remained flexible. I waited a week, still remained flexible. Maybe it's even good.

After drying, both variants were absolutely identical to the flexibility and did not shrink.

What about water? Placed in water for 24 hours, and rubber obtained which is easily torn.

The dried mass can be painted with any paint and coating lacquers.

In general I liked the experiment, the result is quite interesting, it will be possible to take odd jobs.
