The main ingredient is the expired milk. After milk is cooked with cornstarch, vinegar, glycerol, it can be formed with the desired shape and texture by using various surfaces. While it dries, the material naturally curves depending on the method. Either by drying in an open area or a closed environment with the help of a heater. With both ways, the final material becomes very strong and hard. In the phase of drying the shape could also be changed by cutting slices or creating a particular shape. The material is ready for its second lifecycle with the new form after dries.
