Recipe from virineja

Subtracts the Spanish recipe for cold porcelain:

2 cups starch (corn)
2 cups white glue (any)
3 tbsp. tablespoons glycerin
3 tbsp. spoon of white cream (Nivea) (can be petrolatum)
3 tbsp. tablespoons baby oil

Recipe from Natalie

3 / 4 cup white glue
1 cup cornstarch
1 / 2 cup water
1 teaspoon of cold cream (recommended Ponds Cold Cream or Sorbolene, but you can use any white cream)
1 tsp glycerin.

1 / 4 cup water
1 / 4 cup cornstarch
1 / 4 cup baking soda

Mix all wet ingredients and cook over medium heat, until you get a smooth mass. Add the cornstarch. Stir constantly until a ball. Remove the bowl from the saucepan and stir by hand. If too hot cover with a damp towel until cool. Mix all ingredients and cook, stirring constantly until a ball. Keep the remnants of the cold porcelain in a plastic container. This recipe is perfect for sculpting flowers and miniature parts.

Useful tips:

Grease the hand cream before working with cold porcelain to weight strongly stuck to his hands.
Cold porcelain is perfect for sculpting flowers (as opposed to plastic and savory pastry)
For a more realistic colors of flowers with a brush, apply a dry food dye, and then hold over steam from a kettle. Porcelain absorbs the dye. Apply it should be after the flower has fallen asleep.
Also, paint colors can and liquid food dyes, but the disadvantage of this method is that the flower is too bright and unrealistic. Acrylic paints can be used for a deeper color

Recipe 1

1 cup starch (preferably rice, but if no, then the corn)
1 cup dry chalk
2 cups white vinyl adhesive (probably refers to a vinyl-based PVA)
6 teaspoons of liquid petrolatum
6 drops of formalin (formaldehyde) (sold in a pharmacy, CAUTION – Toxic!).


Mix the starch and chalk, slowly add the glue and Vaseline. When everything is compacted, add formalin.
If the mass is too thick, gradually add a little water. Stir well and store in a bag and refrigerated. You can add a lot of different paints (oil, acrylic, oil) and food coloring.

Advantages of cold porcelain:
1. No need to cook.
2. No cracks.

During cooking, the dough goes through several stages: first, it has a creamy consistency, then like cottage cheese, and finally sformirovyvaetsya into a thick mass. It is ready when separated from the walls. Remove from heat. Place on countertop and knead until it has cooled and become smooth and plastic. Put in a tightly sealed plastic bag and after 24 hours the mass is ready for use.

Recipe 4

1 cup salt
1 cup warm water

It is important to coat with a lot of baby oil to wrap up in foil, otherwise it may develop fungus. To remove moisture from the test, change the package after the first 24 hours.

A few tips for working with cold porcelain:

- The product resulting from drying, shrinks by 20-30%
- Formalin Toxic – avoid contact with hands and mucous membranes. Adding it should be cooled a lot! It serves to ensure that the dough does not crack when dry.
- Boil a lot of need in a glass or Teflon cookware, but never in aluminum.
