Modeling Clay Recipes,
Recipes to Make Clay & Play Dough

It's my pleasure to share my modeling clay recipes with you. 

I've written about how easy it is to make figurines with clay as you have seen in my  tutorials but I didn't mention about the recipe for clay.

I received comments and questions from you about the clay I used,  where and what clay to buy, how to make air dry clay and what is the different between air dry and  oven-baked clay. 

Well, I can't answers all your questions here but if you continue browsing my website you will find the answer for sure.

So here I am ready with play dough and clay recipes for you to explore.

My Favorite Modeling Clay Recipes:

cold porcelain clay without glue - homemade clay - better than saltdough-NEW recipe

No Cook Play Dough

This type of modeling material is best for kids at any ages even as young as 1 year old. But, supervision is always good when baby and toddler playing with it.

You need only about 15 minutes to make this type of dough. However, this quick and easy clay may not dry fast depends on the humidity level and climate in your home country.

Salt Dough (Baked & No Bake)

This type of modeling material will dry hard like stone after sometimes. It's easy to make but the texture won't be as smooth as others. You may need to use sand paper sheet to make the surface smooth so you can paint it. Ideal for hanging decorations for Christmas tree, etc.

Soapy Clay

I like soapy clay for its texture and fragrant. The soap added to the clay ingredients will also help to preserve your model. And, it will dry hard. Good home-made clay for miniatures!

Cold Porcelain Recipe

I love cold porcelain clay. Compared to other recipes, this clay has the most variations. I tried more than 10 type of recipes and finally settle down with my own mixtures.

You may have your own version too when you feel comfortable with the final result of your clay. 

This is my best clay to make wedding or birthday cake toppers, favors and souvenirs.

Candy Clay

It is an edible modeling dough for young artists who are into cake decorating. This sweet clay is best to make flat figures and to decorate crackers or cupcakes.

You can't keep this clay for long though.
