Dryer lint modeling compound

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
3 cups Dryer lint (save up your own or ask at a laundromat)
2 cups Cold or warm water
⅔ cup Flour
3 drops Oil of wintergreen
\N \N Old newspaper

In response to several requests I am posting the following recipe. Although this is not an edible recipe, I suppose it qualifies for this list since it uses some flour. <BG>

Put lint and water in a large pan and stir to dampen all parts of the lint.

Add flour and stir thoroughly to prevent lumps. Add oil of wintergreen.

Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until mixture holds together and forms peaks. Pour out onto several thicknesses of old newspaper to cool.

Makes about 4 cups. Stored in an airtight container, it will keep for several days. USES: Shape over boxes, bottles, balloons, and so forth or press into a mod. Use as you would paper-mache. Will dry in 3-5 days to a very hard, durable surface. It dries smooth or rough depending on how it is used. When pressed into a mold, a hard, smooth finish is obtained.
