Plastic made of milk / recipe

ingredients

  • milk
  • white vinegar

material

  • spoon
  • sauce pan
  • strainer
  • paper towels
  • stove

description

  • pour 1 cup of milk into the sauce pan and warm it to a simmer, not a boil.
  • add 4 teaspoons of vinegar to the milk and stir. After a few minutes you should see white clumps form. Keep stirring a few minutes longer.
  • pour the milk through a strainer into a bowl to separate all the white clumps (this is the casein plastic material)
  • Dry the casein plastic material by blotting it gently with paper towel until it’s dry.
  • Mold the plastic material into the shape(s) you prefer, and let it dry for at least 2 days
  • TIP: If the casein is too runny to shape in your hands, next time add a pinch of cornstarch to the milk and vinegar mixture. This will make it hold together better.
