Porcelain for the very least is a classic crafts material, which reminds us of our grandmothers, for the ornaments and dishes that made up their precious collections. You can make a paste that you can work with and model without having to put it in the oven to harden it. You can use it to create small decorative vintage objects inspired by your grannies, as well as more modern ones that you can use as jewelry, or alternatively you can make handprints of your children’s little hands. Then you’re free to paint or varnish your masterpieces to your own tastes.
What you need:
- 200g of vinlyl white glue
- 140g of cornflour
- 1 dessertspoon of vegetable oil to soften the paste
- 1 dessertspoon of white vinegar to conserve the paste
- Moisturiser to help knead the paste
- A non-stick pot
1) Mix the ingredients until the mixture is creamy.
2) Put it on a medium heat, stirring constantly. You need to continue doing this until the mixture starts to lift from the walls of the pot.
3) Put some moisturiser on your work surface, and knead the dough into a ball.
- To conserve it, coat it with moisturiser and place it in the fridge, covered in cling film.
- We recommend that you use gouache paint to colour and decorate it.
- After having created your object and painted it, you need to leave it dry in the open air for a few days. After a few days, the paste will become nice and hard and your object is ready!
