Return to Cornflour (thing)

Cornflour is made from finely ground [corn]; thats what it looks like to me.. It's used in [cooking] as a thickening agent, and also in [HP Sauce].

What I used to do with it though is to make a [saturated solution] of it with cold [water]. This has the interesting properties of flowing like a [liquid], but fracturing like a solid when pushed around too fast and is an example of an [iostropic liquid] (in contrast to a [thixotropy|thixotropic] liquid like [tomato ketchup].
