Making Clay:
In a medium sized pot combine the cornstarch, baking soda and water. Stir over medium heat. After a couple of minutes will begin to thicken. When it looks like smooth mashed potatoes, remove the pot from the heat. Spoon the ball of dough into a bowl and cover it with a damp cloth until it's cool. When it's cool, knead it on a smooth surface until smooth. Add more cornstarch if it feels sticky.

Preheat oven to 175. Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Roll out clay to 1/4 inch thick on a surface lightly dusted with cornstarch. Use cookie cutter to cut out shapes or make it round & flat. Place hand down into dough to make design. Can use a straw for hole at the top of the ornament for a ribbon. Place them in oven for about an hour. Turning 1/2 way through cooking. Can paint when cool.
