Make your own cold porcelain

It's quite simple to make your old cold porcelain. Cold porcelain is an inexpensive, non-toxic, clay-like material that is easy to work with for small projects and subtitutes bought products nicely. Cold porcelain does not require heating, since it hardens by exposure to air.



1 cup PVA glue
1 cup Maizena
1 tbsp. lemon juice
1 tbsp. baby oil






Step 1
Place all your ingredients on a microwave-safe bowl.

Step 2
Mix all your ingredients until you have a smooth creamy paste and microwave for 30 seconds.

Step 3
Take the mix out of the microwave stir it, and place it back in the microwave for another 30 seconds.

Step 4
Stir againĀ  and microwave it for 30 more seconds. (this is the last time in the microwave)

Step 5
Carefully take out the mix and place it on a corn starch covered surface.

Step 6
Start kneading your dough carefully. (It can be really hot) until you get the dough to a consistent texture.

Step 7
Lace your dough in a tightly closed zip lock bag and let it sit on cool temperature overnight.

Step 8
Divide your dough into equal quantities and colour them using food colouring or acrylic paints. (I used about two drops of food colouring per colour)
