Make Your Own Oogoo, A Versatile DIY Sugru-Like Substance

We dig the versatility and strength of Sugru, a friend to DIY-ers that is unfortunately shipped mainly from the UK. Want to make your own? Corn starch, silicone caulk, colouring paints and a few other materials can yield "Oogoo".

Instructables user mikey77 goes the extra mile in detailing not only how to make his at-home Sugru substitute, but also the variations of it you'll need for making conductive circuits. He also provides a whole lot of great use cases. We've previously pointed to Sugru as a mouse grip fixer and laptop cord fixer, but if you don't have to pay shipping on small packets of Sugru, you can feel free to experiment much more liberally.

How To Make Your Own Sugru Substitute [Instructables]


    Where can I get silicone caulk in Australia, without buying online?

      Any hardware store or even the Hardware sections of BigW, KMart etc will sell Silicone Sealant (Caulk)

        It's the stuff that comes in a long tube and you use a Caulk Gun to Squeeze it out in a "strand".. You must've seen it before!

          My dad always used Sylastic (not sure how that's spelled) when I was a kid - is that the same stuff as sillicone caulk?

      I'm an Aussie too - You can get all different types of silicone caulk at Bunnings. Also, as stevothedevo said "even the Hardware sections of BigW, KMart etc will sell"
