Hi guys! This is my first attempt at making cold porcelain, here i'll teach you ot to make it without using the microwave or baking it!
250g of Corn Starch
250g of liquid white glue (I use a italian populare brand, you can use also Elmer's glue)
2 Tbsp Lemon Juice/Vinegar (I better like lemon juice because after the porcelain smells good, with the vinegar it doesn't)
2 Tbsp Baby Oil (I've used Jonson's Baby Oil, it's quite cheap -here 3 euros-
Lotion or hand cream (You use this to mix better the dough)
- A big cup
-a mesuring spoon or just a normal table spoon
-something to mix like a spatula
-a ziplock baggie
First in the bowl add the corn starch and the glue, mix and then add the oil and the lemon juice.. mix and mix and mix again until it seems to become a little ball (this took me a while) but then take the dough out of the bowl and put it on a cutting board or a washable surface and work with it with some gloves and some lotion! Work until it´s smooth and put in some cellphane and inside a ziplock baggie! Now you're done and you have your homemade COLD PORCELAIN without baking it (I've read this tutorial on my mum's crafts book :D hope it helps!
WAY TO COLOR IT:
-Usin a drop of acrylic color
