Learn how to make cold porcelain clay here [link]

I received many lovely comments about the 'failed' rose i made [link] a while ago. Now i would like to challenge again, starting from the left was the first attempt. I have to say i am really happy with the 3rd attempt on the tright, it's start to look more and more like a rose! I can just imagine myself making more and more of these for valentine's next year :giggle:!!

If you would like to see my thoughts about cold porcelain clay please click on the link above!

Have a great week!

Hour roses are so beautiful, I wish I was as good at making roses! I'm still learning, thankfully there are a bunch of neat tutorials here on Da that show you how. My favourite one is the first, but they are all lovely :D

Nice tutorial on the clay. I must say I'm impressed. The petals you have above are translucent, just like the real thing. :thumbsup:

o_O okay, I'm in early childhood education, and last week we had to make an example of sensory play stuff (playdough, sawdust dough, goop, etc) I tried to make "silly putty"(not the actual stuff of course), which is 1/2 school glue and 1/2 liquid starch. I had no liquid starch, so I used water and cornstarch. What I made was... not for children. BUT, apparently I made your cold porcelain on accident XD

as for the roses, beautiful!

oh, i was also making some play dough and salt dough for my mum's kintergarten too! But the play dough didn't turn out right, it's just a flour dough ==..! Never heard of silly putty, maybe i should give it a try too!!

Hello there Lisa :aww: ... Nice roses, I wanna thank you for sharing the recipe on this :la:, it is wonderful ! :la:

I want to ask you, do these turns into solid matter ? ....:-? like in forever a rock like thing ?, or if it gets into contact with water it gets destroyed ?

li-sa Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
you are welcome! The clay will turn hard after it dries for 1-2 days. The clay is durable and rock hard when it dries, but it depends on the thickness of your object. For example, the petals of the rose are really thin so it's really fragile, therefore it will break easily. If the object is a ball shape, it is very hard, it is not squishy at all!.

when it comes to water, yes if it gets soaked for a long time the clay will 'melt', but if its just a few droplets, you can wipe it and let it dry. I normally glaze my object so it comes waterproof!

Hope this answer your questions! ^_^

I actually used pastels for the color. I shaved some off a pastel stick and then applied the powdered color with a paint brush before baking. I had seen that technique mentioned in a bunch of tutorials so wanted to give it a try.

Pretty! I loved the cold porcelain tutorial, thank you so much! Crazy coincidence, just a few hours ago I was talking to my mom about learning how to make porcelain beads for some necklaces I'm making, so it came in handy :) (assuming cold porcelain will serve for that!).
