hello laundry starch!

After canceling classes and hunkering inside for a few days due to a “blizzard” (or at least it was predicted to be one) recently, we were thinking about art and craft projects that are perfect for a snow day. Our Director of Fine Arts Viviana pointed us in the direction of an interesting free download.

It’s put out by the company that makes Linit, the liquid laundry starch we use when making goop.linit_bottle

The only other necessary ingredient for goop is white glue (though we use liquid watercolor paints for fun colors too). Goop is always popular in our studios.

(And don’t worry about the $2 price on the website – it is a free download)


We are eying the marbling project, and found the fabric walls idea intriguing. We’ll post back with our project results – let us know if you make anything!
