Experiments in Bio Plastic 1.0

This is an experiment making bio plastic with natural ingredients. Every single ingredient to make bioplastic you can buy at Whole Foods. 


4 Tablespoons Water (distilled)

1 Tablespoon Tapioca

1 Teaspoon Vinegar

1 Teaspoon Glycerin 


I attempted to use a silicone mold to experiment with using forms. This was an epic fail! I realized that the bioplastic needs air ventilation to dry.  You can see in the finished product, that the plastic got shriveled and lost the form of the heart. I think this is because of the drying process.
