A popular variant of polymer clay helps create a variety of forms and, accordingly, crafts. But, not everyone of us can provide himself with such clay in the store.
How to make polymer clay with your own hands for modeling - home porcelain technique
You need to do it yourself, but how? Polymer clay, or as sometimes they say "Cold porcelain" is made with the help of special materials. We need to take:
- Potato starch in the amount of 100 grams.
- Cream with high fat content (incomplete spoon, tea)
- Baby oil (tea spoons, two, full)
- Glue PVA (100 ml.)
Fluid preparation To begin with, we fill the pan in the water and set iton fire to a boil. At the same time, prepare the ingredients. Using disposable cups we measure 100 grams. in one cup you need to measure the glue, in the other - starch. Next, the glues must be squeezed onto the surface of the enamel, which will suit us as dimensional indicators, in order to heat our product in a bath (water bath). You need to add one teaspoon of cream and 2 teaspoons of butter. We mix all this and put it on a water bath. The mixture should not overheat, otherwiseit will harden too much. It needs to be mixed several times and after, add starch in it, using small proportions, pour out all the starch in a single amount, if the proportion is larger - then gradually and stirring periodically. Preparing the mixture for use It is necessary to interfere with intensive movements tothe mixture did not have time to stick to the dishes. Then, in a minute another will form lumps, the mixture will become similar to the curd mass. At this point, it is very important not to overexpose the product. It is necessary to remove it soon from the bathhouse and then, put it on a board, greased with the help of a cream. The cream also needs to be put on hands and then, kneadthe mass that we will get (the mass should not have high temperatures, if it is not overexposed in the bathhouse). The polymer clay will be ready. But, it's best to wrap it in a film composition so that no air flows into your mixture. We are waiting about 12 hours.
