Ellen writes “Children have been clamoring for Floam, a micro-beaded modeling clay that has been heavily and attractively advertised. Unfortunately, people who have ordered Floam report long delays and deceptive business practices. Instead, make your own Floamâ„¢-like clay in whatever quantities and colors you like. We found several anonymous recipes online. My husband Keith Golden tried three different recipes, then refined the best one. The result is virtually identical to Floamâ„¢ (except for smelling better).” Link.
