For my first two experiment, i ended up to create my own recipe mixing many other recipes that i found from different websites;
1 table spoon corn starch
4 table spoon water
1 tea spoon glycerin
1 tea spoon gelatin
1 tea spoon vinegar
When i started to cook, ingredients that i put in the pot started to solidify immediately. It took like 2 minutes it went liquid to gel and became like play-dough(the video that we saw in the class (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-7KCzldr75o). It was really easy to give a form and work with. For my other experiments, i added orange juice to give some color to the bioplastic.
Also, to give different shapes, i put some of them into my laser cut piece to give a square and rectangular form. I rolled the other parts to give a shape of a ball. The material was really easy to give a form, as i said, it was like a play-dough. So, i ended up giving some curves as well to achieve a snail-shell look.
that’s the one i added orange juice
