kmrhodes: darn straight
norajean_sf: Tell Jael about the corn starch peanut
icare4bunnies: yeah. tell me
vlady6us: they dissolve in water and u can use them
for making beads
vlady6us: or even pinch pots
icare4bunnies: hollow beads, then?
vlady6us: they bake then put in water and they disolve
kmrhodes: I use cornstarch peanuts and dunk them into
water.the water dissolves the peanut and you got a pot
icare4bunnies: good idea!
vlady6us: yes..but there has to be a hole in hollow
icare4bunnies: of course or you will explode them
canastananny: what are ya'll talking about?
icare4bunnies: like a covered egg
icare4bunnies: I have lots of packing peanuts.
vlady6us: packing peanuts made of cornstarch..
kmrhodes: has to be cornstarch peanuts
kmrhodes: or the fumes are toxic
canastananny: oh, okay, now it all makes sense
vlady6us: u have to wet one to see if its cornstarch
kmrhodes: put it in your mouth, if it dissolves its
kmrhodes: if not, spit it out
icare4bunnies: found one
icare4bunnies: I'd say I could tell by which ones my
bunny eats, but he will eat styrofoam if I don't watch him.
