Homemade Cold Porcelain Air Dry Clay

I love working with clay. I've been buying clay from various sources.Have always wondered to make my own clay at home.So spent a ample amount of time finding the nitty gritties.

And there are many recipes available on internet for making homemade clay. I've tried making many versions.Out of all, this recipe worked like a charm.Its a low cost and very simple ingredient recipe.Do give it a Try.

Materials Used:- 
  • 1 cup Cornstarch 
  • 1 cup glue 
  • 2 tablespoons Baby oil 
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice or vinegar 
  • Moisturizer cream(for kneading)

Use a good non stick pan for preparing your clay.
Measure out your ingredients.
Start by putting your corn starch in the pan.

Pour in the Glue.
Whisk it properly so that there are no lumps.
Pour in the baby oil and Vinegar.

Mix well.

Put it on gas and stir well.
Don't worry if it forms clots. That's the way it cooks.
Once it forms into a whole lump and leaves the sides of your pan, take it off the gas.

For Kneading , spread a small amount of moisturizer on to your counter and hands.
I used Nivea.

Knead your clay to soften it.Be very careful, as your clay would be hot.
Knead it atleast for 10 to 15 mins.

This is how your clay would look.
Use a zip lock or Plastic wrap to store your clay.
The clay would be warm, so when you put in the wrap it would form moisture. Clean the moisture with a clean cloth. Keep cleaning the moisture till the clay is cool.

Your clay is ready to be worked on.

Happy crafting 😊😊!!!


  1. Hi... For How long this clay can be preserved? If so let us know how to preserve...

    1. can be preserved for 2 to 3 months....but cover it in zip lock bag or cling sheet and store it in a air tight containers.....this helps!!!

  2. What temperature should the heat be? Low, medium or high? I have an electric stove.

    1. @Dog Gone Pretty ...it should be at low....so that it does'nt burn.

  3. Very great post. I simply stumbled upon your blog and wanted to say that I have really enjoyed browsing your weblog posts. After all I’ll be subscribing on your feed and I am hoping you write again very soon!

  4. Can you substitute coconut oil for baby oil? I have lots of coconut oil on hand but never baby oil. Also, what kind of glue? Does White Elmer's work?

    1. @ib
      ....yes u can substitute with any cooking oil....it will work....
      And any white glue will b good.

  5. I have saved some clay in an air-tight container for over one year without molding or drying out though I do not recommend doing so. You should be safe to say six months in an airtight container tightly wrapped. Blessings!
