We discover how to make hand made conductive plasticine at this website of the University of St Thomas. Below there is a wonderfull presentation of AnnMarie Thomas:
1. Conductive plastecine ingredients:
1 cup Water
1 1/2 cups Flour
(A gluten free version of this dough can be made by replacing the flour with gluten-free flour.)
1/4 cup Salt
3 Tbsp. Cream of Tartar /or/ 9Tbsp. of Lemon Juice
1 Tbsp. Vegetable Oil
1 Food Coloring
2. Conductive plastecine using Thermomix!
Inspired on this tutorial from SSThomas.edu we decided to explore a new way of making the conductive dough with a Termomix Machine. We wanted to run the worshop in a place where there was no cook!
a. Mix all ingredients into the Thermomix with a spoon.
b. Set the Thermomix on the ear mode. This mode is for knead dough.
c. After a while, stop the Thermo and touch the mixture. If it gets stick to your fingers it is necessary to put some more flour.
d. Once the dough has reached the desired consistency place the ball on a lightly floured surface.
3. It is time to prepare the conductive dough to insert it into Oblobots!
