Homemade Embellishments with Cold Porcelain Clay

Hi Friends
Sharing some embellishments I made with some homemade Cold Porcelain clay and a small tutorial today 

I used easily available stuff in the house to make the clay and some sugarcraft/ terracotta plunger tools to make these , have a look at my plunger tools and my ball of clay wrapped in some cling film...

and have a look at a mixed media piece using my clay birds after being painted with Acrylic colors in black and pearl colors 

Cold Porcelain Clay Recipe : 
Cornflour : one cup
PVA Glue: one cup ( I used Fevicol MR )
White vinegar : one TBS
Baby oil/cooking oil : one TBS
Hand Lotion
Add all except hand lotion in a microwave safe bowl and mix well. Put in the microwave for 10 secs bursts on medium three times. Take out between intervals and mix well every time. cooking time may depend on your particular machine so it is better to start with shorter duration. Do not overcook and take out when the mix starts to get lumpy. Dust your kitchen counter with a generous amount of cornflour and take out the clay mixture while it is hot and knead well. If you find the dough dry then add some glue and if it is runny then add some cornflour. It is easy to adjust the mix while it is hot.Knead till smooth and forms a tear shape when pulled.coat generously with Hand Lotion and wrap tightly in cling foil. Rest for a day at room temperature and then use whichever way you plan to. As this is an air dry clay, keep tightly wrapped in cling foil and then in a zipper bag. It took me about half an hour to make the clay and another half hour to make all these embellishments. These are very strong after they dry and can be painted, sprayed, glittered to use on paper, metal, wood or 3-D panels etc. 
I really enjoyed making these, hope you will give it a try !! You can also see this link for more information.

  1. Wow, what a wonderful collection! I use crafter's clay right now, but it is really pricey and hard to find!! I am definitely going to give your recipe a try! Just one quick question about the clay after it hard and breakable or soft and flexible? Thanks so much Suman! hugs :)

    1. Thanks Pamellia, after drying the clay is hard but had a tiny amount of flexibility too, too much of pressure and it can break but mendable.what I mean is it is not brittle !! Best thing is the clay keeps well on room temperature as long as it is packed airtight !! Hope this helps, Hugs !!
