all natural play dough…

PJB_photoplaydoughrecipe

So I’ve been having a bit of fun making all natural play dough lately. This batch of coloured fun is my third or so experiment and I’m rather happy with it. Though I’ve got some ideas for the next batch which I’ll share with you in case you’d like to try.

Since I want to use only natural colour, I’ve adapted this recipe from best recipes, minimizing quantities and introducing soaking selected ingredients to create coloured water. Here is my adapted recipe:

 

…………………………………………….

1 cup plain flour
1/2 cup salt
1/2 tablespoon (or so) of cooking oil (i’ve been using sunflower)
1/4-1/2 cup of cold, coloured water

To make the coloured water, soak a handful of your chosen ingredient (spinach for green, beetroot for deep purple, mixed frozen berries for rose/light purple) in a ramekin or glass container of 1/2cup water, preferably overnight. Strain the liquid and pop it in the fridge for a little while to make it cold, or add an ice cube.

In a large bowl, mix the flour and salt together well. At this stage if you are making yellow, add a good sprinkling of tumeric powder. Then add the cooking oil and 1/4cup of coloured water. Mix then knead until well combined. Add more water if needed to get the right consistency.

…………………………………………….

I then put each ball of play dough into clear, recycled plastic containers and leave them in the back of the fridge. To allow them to soften slightly, I take them out about 1/2 hour before we are ready to play with them  (yes, WE – Laly and I both love playing with play dough – yesterday I made a fantastic collection of funny looking dinosaurs which Laly promptly invited all to a tiny tea party). This batch was a little crumbly when I took them out, so I just added splashes of water and kneaded them a bit more and they were perfect. Adding flour and water makes playing with it all the more fun for Laly, so I don’t mind if I don’t get the consistency spot on when I make them. And yes, the colours do come off ever so slightly when you play with them, but barely – and honestly, who cares? It washes off with a dab of a cloth.

The other thing I’d like to say is that I soaked beetroot skins in some water overnight, hence the gorgeous intense colour. However I didn’t soak the spinach or the mixed berries but next time I will to get more intense colour, though if you like it subtle, soak for less.

My last batch of yellow and rose lasted many months – basically until the colours get all smooshed together and the ball diminishes to a tiny size, as happens when little hands get hold of it.

I hope you’ll give this a try. I can’t wait to try out more ingredients for more colours!  Any suggestions?

xx

Handmade wooden iPhone cases by the Alto Collective

I love these handmade wooden iPhone cases from the Alto Collective in Canada, a KickStarter project that has significantly exceeded its $17,000 fundraising goal. Designed for iPhone and Samsung Galaxy, the cases are made from a polycarbonate case with a handcrafted wood veneer bonded to the back, making them thin and light, but more durable than most full wood cases.

And since they add only 2mm to the back of the phone (1mm to either side), and just 18 grams to the total weight, you hardly notice they’re there.

My only reservation is that, unlike most other iPhone covers, these cases don’t have any sort of protruding lip to prevent scratching of the screen if placed face down. But, immaculately put together, the cases really are rather beautiful, with the wood providing an interesting juxtaposition to the phones they cover.

These miniature dead man’s feet will make any book a killer read

These miniature dead man’s feet will make any book a killer read

Tacky? Sure. Fun? Hell yeah. Having a pair of legs sticking out of a book has got to be one of the best — if macabre — ways we could never have thought of for a bookmark. Ukraine-based Etsy seller and ex-architect Olena Mysnyk, who is responsible for this polymer clay madness, makes these leggy bookmarks in a variety of styles from bare morgue-bound feet with a ‘DEAD’ tag hanging off the toes, to Christian Louboutin pumps, ice skates, flip flops, rainboots and even green leprechaun feet.

Kaviar & Cigarettes Fall/Winter 2013 Lookbook

Kaviar and Cigarettes Fall 2013

Though their products may be made in L.A., Kaviar & Cigarettes aesthetic draws deeply from the New York City scene, including DIY punk and Hip-Hop culture so closely associated with the metropolis in the 90′s. The result are pieces that are made using a cut and sew method, entirely by hand, resulting in a product that’s as incredibly high-quality as it is unique.

Incorporating strong visual elements to each piece, Kaviar & Cigarettes is a brand for those looking to step up from the ubiquitous graphic tee or crewneck and into something a little more fashion-forward. Each design is limited to 20 pieces, which means though you’ll get compliments wherever you go, no matter how much you travel you’re probably not going to find your doppelganger. Check out more piece at Kaviar & Cigarettes, where you can also shop online.

Cuddle up with a Grizzly Bear bean bag

Cuddle up with a Grizzly Bear bean bag

Etsy seller Chicsindesigndotcom wants you to rest and sit on top of a sleeping grizzly bear. It’s not only a good living room fixture, but it can also be a guard dog.. err, bear for uninvited guests. If you can’t handle grizzly bears, you can rest your toosh on either a brich wood or a cotton wood. Tarzan baby not included.

Now, if you’re really not an outdoors-y person, maybe you’re the type who loves meat. In fact, you love meat so much that you’d rather sleep and share your dreams with a big slab of it than eat it. Don’t worry, we won’t tell anyone.
