Painting porcelain - by Craft & Creativity
Cold Porcelain #1: 1 cup pva glue (white glue like Elmer's Glue All); 1 cup cornstarch; 1 tablespoon mineral oil (babyoil); 1 tablespoon lemon juice, witchhazel, or clove oil (natural preservatives that help prevent mold) 1. Combine in pot. Don't use your good cookware for this because it can be hard to clean off. 2. Cook on low heat stirring constantly for 10 min or until dough forms + begins to come away from sides.
The dishes are made using craft porcelain, a clay-like material that requires no baking. (Craft porcelain is available at Hobby Lobby for $7.99.) After rolling out the craft porcelain, a piece of lace is pressed gently on top to create the design. A sharp instrument is then used to remove the excess. Placing the clay in a rounded container allows the piece to dry in the shape of the bowl. The piece will be dry in about 24 hours.
