Cold porcelain is an inexpensive, nontoxic, easy-to-work-with material. Despite its name it is not porcelain. It does not require heating, since it gets hard by exposure to fresh air. Originally from Argentina, its main components are cornstarch and white glue, having also low quantities of oils and glycerol which give its porcelain-like texture. Because most of the constituents are biodegradable, lemon juice and sodium benzoate are sometimes used to prevent the growth of bacteria and fungi. It can be made at home very easily and it’s used for small projects. However, it is dissolved by heat or water, so it’s not suitable for making crockery.

There are no clear records on when & how this craft came into existence. Most records say it started in Argentina few decades ago & some say it has evolved from the bread dough based flower making technique practised in Victorian England.

  1. For clay – cornstarch, glue, baby oil or cold cream & glycerin
  2. Cutters for petals & leaves & leaf stamp
  3. Flower wire – various gauges & flower pin
  4. Curved scissors for flower petals
  5. Non-stick Rolling pin for uniformly flattening the clay
  6. Acrylic or oil Colors & paintbrush
  7. Craft coloring dust

How to make cold porcelain?

Take ½ cup water, ¾ cup white glue (fevicol), 1 cup cornstarch, 1tsp baby oil & few drops of glycerin.  Mix water, glue, baby oil & glycerin in heavy bottomed skillet & stir until smooth over medium heat. Cook for a few minutes and add cornstarch. Stir continually until it forms a ball, remove from pan and mix thoroughly with hands. Cover with a damp cloth & knead the mixture in the towel till it’s cool enough. Remove it from the cloth & knead it until thoroughly mixed. Keep the cold porcelain in an airtight plastic zip bag & do not refrigerate. To color the cold porcelain, add a dab of oil paint to a small portion of the porcelain and knead it until the color has completely spread evenly throughout it.

Tips

  1. Do not mix your clay utensils with your kitchen utensils.
  2. To give the clay elasticity, always knead each piece of clay. Avoid storing colored clay.
  3. If the porcelain becomes too stiff add a small dab of cold cream or water in your palms and knead it.
  4. If the porcelain is too sticky, add a teaspoon of cornstarch.
  5. When you go to sculpt the cold porcelain, rub cold cream on your hands to keep it from sticking.
