Rice starch polymer

by Anna

 

Hi! I’m in the first year of Uni. My first projects to have a play around with making polymers out of household ingredients, I’ve done cold porcelain already and now I’m playing around with rice starch. I’ve started extracting it from the rice buly boiling the rice and simmering the starchy water Intil I get a thick paste. I was hoping to somehow make this into a powder before adding glycerine etc. But how would I make this a powder? Or would I need to at all?
Thank
Anna
