Toothpaste Modeling Dough

(Recipe for one ball of dough)



  • 1 tablespoon of white liquid glue
  • 2 tablespoons of cornstarch
  • ½ tablespoon of water
  • ½ tablespoon of toothpaste
  • 1-2 drops of food coloring


  1. Combine the glue, cornstarch, food coloring, and toothpaste in a bowl.
  2. Add water and mix until the dough forms a block
  3. The dough must be used IMMEDIATELY. It hardens after 20 minutes and will be completely dried out after 24 hours.
  4. Once dry, your sculpture will be hard as rock and will smell minty.
  5. To create fun shapes, you can mould the dough in ice cube trays or candy moulds.
