    Use white bread without crusts, white school glue (such as Elmers, but any white school glue will do) It is sticky and messy, but once the "clay" comes together you can use food coloring or water based paints to tint it the colors you want. I have used it to make flowers & little characters and once it dries -- it is extremely durable! I have a couple of "roses" I made nearly 40 years ago. It requires nothing but a little bit of patience. This will air dry after you have shaped your pieces and can be sanded and/or painted, gilded or stained. Have fun!

    After they dry for a long time, until they are has hard as a rock, then spray with a gloss spray. It will keep forever.
