Make bioplastic by yourself!

Make bioplastic by yourself!


Add 1 tablespoon of cornflour and 1 teaspoon of vinegar to 4 tablespoons of water in a cooking pot. Add also 1 teaspoon of glycerin. You can get the glycerine in a pharmacy. Stir the mixture thoroughly with a whisk and heat over medium heat. Always keep stirring. After a few minutes, the mixture becomes thicker. After more or less 10 minutes you have a sticky and glassy substance in your cooking pot. You can then spread this substance on a baking tray or another suitable surface. Wait at least 24 hours for the bioplastic to dry. Then you can pull it off the baking tray. Tip: The more glycerin you take, the softer your bioplastics becomes. If you take less glycerin, the bioplastic will become harder but also more fragile. You can also use cooking oil, instead of glycerin, but it doesn’t work as well.

  1. well that helped

    what were the ingredients

    you dummy if your gonna make a video that says make so-and-so by yourself you gotta mention the ingredients

  2. I had google auto- translate it from german:
    "Add 1 tablespoon of starch and 1 teaspoon of vinegar to 4 tablespoons of water in a saucepan. Add 1 teaspoon of glycerine. The glycerine you get in a pharmacy. If you want to make more bioplastics, you can double, triple, etc. the quantities.

    Stir the mixture thoroughly with a whisk and heat over medium heat. Always keep stirring. After a few minutes, the mixture becomes tougher, you have to then replace the whisk with a wooden spoon to continue to stir. After 10 minutes at the latest, you have a sticky and glassy substance in your saucepan. You can then pass on a baking sheet or other suitable surface. Wait at least 24 hours for the bioplastic to dry. Then you can pull it off the baking sheet. The bioplastics can be cut well if you want to make something out of it.

    If you want to make objects, you can rub the still soft bioplastic into fabric. But first check if the bioplastic is not too hot so you do not burn yourself! For example, you can place this bioplastics-soaked fabric on an upside-down bowl and smooth it out. Wait at least 24 hours before removing the dried bioplastic again. For example, you can make bowls made from bioplastic material. In the video you see an example, but let your ingenuity run wild!"

  3. Folks, add google translate to your extensions list. A small blue icon will now be on the upper right hand side of your page. Just click. Then click on "Austrian to English" at the top of your page and the entire web page will be translated with no further work.

  4. Why the fuck make a video with no ingredients and just a person stirring white goo then call it making plastic smh get the fuck out of here

    That's it humans 🙂

  6. For everybody who asked himself what the link explains here is a short translation. Take one tablespoon starch mix it with one teaspoon vinegar, 4 tablespoons water and one teaspoon glycerine in a pan. Take a whisk and mix it throughly at a medium heat until it is a thick goey mass. Now change your whisk with a big spoon and put the goey bioplastic on a cooking sheet. Let it cool and give it any shape and thickness you like. Leave it 24h to dry. Now you have your bioplastic. Have fun ! By the way you can experiment with the glycerine to change the hardness of your bioplastic. More glycerine makes a softer plastic and less a harder but more brittle plastic.

  7. UM IDevenK WHAT TO SAY???? THIS MAKES NO FUCKING SENSE AND THE MUSIC SOUNDS LIKE SOMETHING THAT IS GETTING STRANGLED! im gonna take all ur money an make bio plastic out of it!

  8. So all I need is a stove, a pot and a whisk. Then whatver i stir in it will turn into a plastic? Thanks, great instructions! xD

    Jokes a side, but it would help if you provided the ingredients as well… And I mean in the video or inside the description-box as text, instead of linking to a website contaning the real instructions.

    For me, all that's telling me is that there is a reason why this video wants me to click on that link, and I don't know if it's to kindly showing me an awesome website – or to trick me into installing some snooping trackers/cookies or even dangerous malware =/ So if I'm not familliar with an URL or doesn't trust it, I do not click on it.

    And while I'm on the topic, more people should start taking caution while surfing around, and not click on just about any link that shows up! I'm not claiming that this perticular link contains malware or is dangerous in any way, I just wanted to spread awareness that not all websites are honest and safe.
