Cold Porcelain Recipe

I am sure you can find cold porcelain recipe easily online. I tried more than 5 recipes as suggested by others before finally I settled down with my own recipe. 

I didn't invent this as it was there. But I did a little bit of experiment with material compositions. The result? I could say I have almost unbreakable cold porcelain clay.

I threw my half finish figurine to the floor from about 1 meter high and it stays as it is - no broken shoes. 

I am not sure what ingredient make it that way but I could say this is happening after I added stearin (stearic acid)  which is normally used to make candle.

  • First step: pour your glue on to non-stick pan together with other ingredients. Mix them lightly, put the pan on the burner with smallest flame possible. Continue stirring until all ingredients mix well and then add corn starch little by little.

  • Second step: continue stirring until it gets sticky and stickier. It will become heavy and hard to stir but continue until you can lift up the clay from the pan.

  • Cover your kitchen bench with baking paper (non-stick paper) and place your clay on it. It would be hot, little bit sticky in the beginning and you may have uneven lumps here and there. 
  • Knead the clay for about 20 minutes until it smooth and didn't stick on to your fingers. 
  • Divide the clay to few smaller sizes and let it cool down. 
  • Keep the clay in sealed plastic bag. You can color the clay now with food color, acrylic, pastel or water colors.
