Guys… I did it…

Oh my life…

I FINALLY DID IT !
I MADE COLD PORCELAIN WITHOUT FAILING ! SDFKJHSDKFJS

Here is the video I used to make it.:


This time, the ingredients I used are:

  • 1 cup corn starch
  • 2 tbsp baby oil
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice

So I’ve used this method once already and that time completely failed. I didn’t microwave it long enough and the ingredients just wouldn’t stay together.
THIS time , I left in for longer. About five 20 second intervals – basically till I had random lumps in the mixture and when I mixed it around, it sort of clumped together into a ball.

Now for the mixing.
I spend 40 MINUTES mixing…
At first, I was like okay, the person said it’ll come together in 10 minutes or so – so I kept going.
It didn’t come together. I used lots of lotion and just kept trying to mix it and nothing worked D: It was seriously bumming me out. If I failed this time, I would’ve wasted 1000ml of glue.

I got angry and decided to use a WHOLE bunch of cornstarch. Seriously, I think I used 3 cups to mix with. I just sat there mixing it and adding more until it didn’t stick to my gloves.
The consistency got better so I decided to use lotion to mix. It turned sticky again,, u__u;

And so more cornstarch was added.

Then finally, I realised that MAYBE I was using the wrong lotion – so I went back and took my sister’s neutrogena non-greasy handcream.

SDJKFLHSKDHFKJ IT WORKED

So yes…
I finally have a successful batch of cold porcelain. I’m going to use it and let it dry and see if it cracks, I’ll make a review post when that time comes.
Ah,, I’m so happy right now…. I’ve failed making cold porcelain 4 times already..

Conclusion : Use non-grease lotion to mix your clay. I tried like 4 different lotions and only this made my clay not turn sticky again. Also, cornstarch… lots and lots of cornstarch.
:D
Anyways, this is just some exciting(?) news for me because this might be a solution for saving my moneys on clay.
