In this workshop, I will detail how I make my cold porcelain. This master class will be interesting not only for those who want to mold their first flower, but do not dare to make cold porcelain themselves, but also for those who have been sculpting for a long time and professionally, because as a result of the usual recipe I have modified, clay is obtained almost like Thai modern or fleur (compare below).

In the photo above, you can see what we need for this (exactly this). The main thing in this set, of course, is the glue. It must be with a plasticizer, otherwise it won't work. Initially, I made clay from the same glue, only in a red can with D2 plasticizer, but the clay turned out to be viscous, dries quickly, and does not roll out well. I decided to change the glue to this one in a white can, it has a D1 plasticizer.

Such glue is sold in construction stores such as megastroy, leroy merlin. Trust me, it's worth looking …

Regarding starch: I haven’t tried to use potato starch, I don’t know, corn is better, as it gives whiteness and velvety.

Regarding the cream: I could not find a better nivey cream in a blue jar. It contains everything for good clay: vaseline oil, wax, paraffin, glycerin (use only it).

Regarding Johnsos oil: if it is not there, then you can replace it with petroleum jelly (sold in a pharmacy), but Johnsos also contains coconut oil, it is a softener, gives the mass tenderness, softness, velvety - almost like children's butts?

I have not tried using lemon juice instead of citric acid, it seems to me that liquid is not needed here.

Let's start! I will write in great detail so that you do not make my mistakes and you succeed.

1. Pour 100 ml of glue into the first glass.

2. Pour starch into the second glass, the same amount (hit the glass on the table so that it settles and, if necessary, add more starch so that there is an even amount). Then take a teaspoon and add 3 more spoons with a slight slide. It should look like this:

3. It is also important in what to cook the mass. You need a container with a thick bottom and a good non-stick coating so that the mass gradually warms up. I once cooked in a thin frying pan with a glossy non-stick coating (it didn't work), the only time I threw it into the bucket. Another point: there should be no dust or lint on the frying pan and spatula, so wipe it with a damp cloth, and then a waffle towel or paper napkin, otherwise it will all be in your snow-white china.

4. Pour the glue into the pan, then the nivey cream, oil, citric acid. The proportions in the picture.

You need a full teaspoon of oil (it spilled out a little when I photographed it).

5. We put the pan on a small fire and this moment we don't go anywhere and we don't get distracted. Stir vigorously and smoothly with a wooden spatula so that the cream dissolves completely.

6. When the pan becomes warm, but not hot, the first bubbles appear, then pour half a glass of starch and stir vigorously, then the second part and stir without stopping.

7. You need to stir in a circular motion, as if collecting the mass into a lump. An important point: when to remove from the pan? You can undercooked and overcooked. I do this: when a lump has gathered, as in the last photo, I press it with a spatula against the pan and lift it up, if it falls freely, remove it immediately, if it sticks, then it's too early.

8. Prepare a clean, smooth kneading surface in advance. Sprinkle lightly with starch and lay out a lump. Let it cool down.

At this time, you will wash the pan and everything that was with the glue. The glue is quickly washed off with simple detergent and hot water. After that, wipe your hands with a damp cloth and a dry waffle towel (otherwise everything will remain in porcelain), dust your hands in starch and begin to intensively knead the mass. The mass must be warm, not hot, otherwise there will be a paste.I don't knead on the board, but I do it in my hands - knead it like plasticine, stretch it, knead it, and so on. If it sticks to your hands, lightly powder the mixture and continue for 5 minutes. The mass should turn out to be plastic (not torn), soft, velvety, snow-white.

Wrap it in a plastic bag, letting air out and put it in any opaque container away from the battery. By the way, I do not grease the bag with cream, since the mass does not stick (the cream gives the mass shine and plasticity). It is stored perfectly. After a month it does not lose its properties. Let's compare the purchased clay and mine.

Let's compare for plasticity, for transparency, for color.

Personally, my conclusions and feelings:

Cold porcelain is no worse than purchased Thai clay - the same soft, plastic, even more velvety and whiter, accepts paint well, does not shrink, and tolerates moisture well.

But there is one but: after 10-12 hours of solidification, you can correct the shape of the product, but after two days it is no longer possible to do this.

What do Thais add to their clay to maintain plasticity? Maybe someone knows?

I present my work, made entirely of porcelain of my own production.
