Step 2: Playdough + CPC (4th New Recipe)
the sticky cold porcelain clay then kneaded both together adding 40 % more cornstarch flour.
They held their form well, but the real test is in a few days how much distortion or shrinkage will occur.
UPDATE - ration of 2:9 for playdough and cold porcelain clay might result in a better mix. The beads distorted
and turned into lumpy looking rocks. If that is the effect your looking for, this clay is it.
This 'clay' dries quickly in direct sunlight, though indoors stays sticky for days.
Its more economical also since less cornflour and pva wood glue is needed.
Here's the ingredients:
2 tbl tartaric acid
3/4 cup salt
3 cups water
4 cups plain flour
Bring water, salt and tartaric acid to simmer. Once salt crystals dissolved turn of heat and add flour.
Stir with wood spoon until smooth. Cook at medium heat until a dough forms. This method tends to
have less lumps and results in a smoother mixture.
Cold Porcelain Recipe
1 cup water
2 cups PVA wood glue
1 cup cornstarch flour
Mix water and glue in pot well first. Add cornstarch. Turn on meadium heat until a sticky gluey mixture forms.
Turn off heat, add 1/4 more cornstarch flour and stir well with wood spoon. It should result in a sticky dough.
Make playdough and cold pocelain (3rd recipe) separately.
Remove from stove. While still warm knead 1/3 cold porcelain mixture together with 2/3 playdough mixture.
Knead in extra 1/4 cup of cornflour till dough is pliable.
The resulting dough is wonderful for rolling with pasta machine and rolling pin.
