Madhav Tankha- Bioplastic experiments

I used a base recipe of 2 tbspns corn starch, 8 tbspns water, 2 tspns glycerine, 2 tbspns vegetable oil, and a couple of pinches of gelatin, and then made a few variations where I tweaked the amount of ingredients a bit..sadly they all came out roughly similar, a gooey blob that came apart easily. Perhaps more corn starch next time? Im also going to experiment with baking, all these were made in the stove.

I tried to overreach and made a mould for a mask which I thought would be amazing, but it came apart and now all I have are blobs, one of which I have captured and will display in class.
