Homemade Dough/Clay Recipe

By on December 11th, 2012

Hello friends,

How is your winter/holiday season going on? I hope you are enjoying coldness & warmness both sometimes, well I am a fan of winter season..I Love winter..& I always enjoy this great blessing of Allah Almighty..I hope you will be enjoying your time as well..

Today I will share the making of homemade dough for random crafts & jewelry things.Preparing homemade dough is not a difficult job near me, a few days back I was thinking about making some jewelry with dough.. today I will show you how you can make homemade dough for random crafts..Lets see how I did..

You will need- 2 cup cornflour,half cup white glue, 1 tbsp Vaseline, 1tsp lemon juice,(it will prevent fungus) btw we have a lemon plant in our backyard area, & this fresh lemon is plucked by me.,

For making dough, Simply mix the glue & lemon juice in cornflour & start making dough. if its going sticky, grease your palms with Vaseline on and off, then again start making dough.

When you will see its not getting sticky with your hands, the dough will be done!

It must be in smooth & soft condition.

Grease a plastic bag with Vaseline & save the dough in it. be sure to make a tight knot.

Right after making the dough,I thought to try something..I add a drop of Plaid folkart paint in some dough & mix with fingers. so here u can see this pink color out of red paint.

So I make a bracelet with some twists experiment!

Note** Do NOT refrigerate, Don’t bake, Don’t add water.Protect from Air.

Have a look at a few of my Tutorials in archives with almost the same recipe of dough making.

Jewelry Box Embellishment

Hair clip designing


 Handmade Earrings

Here it is a sneak peek of my next post(customized Pendant Making)..I hope you will be visiting again for its easy &  fun tutorial..

In chance, if your dough get dried or failed while making, you dont need to worry about it.. create something useful with that trash..

#47RebekahDecember 22, 2012, 10:21 pm

Looks great! I have a question. When you make your piece of jewelry with this dough, do you just let the dough air dry? How long does it usually take for the piece to be ready to wear?

    #48Khadija’s Creative MindDecember 24, 2012, 10:11 am

    Thanks & yes,air dried.. after creating any piece of jewelry, I just leave it for a few hours & for the best result 12 hours time is OK..!!

#49mahayMay 17, 2013, 3:13 pm

its so easy and nice method. Thank u so much sweet heart. Can i use food colors in case if i dont find ur mentioned colors? Secondly how long it can be used after packing in plastic bag?

#50ChiquitaAugust 16, 2013, 7:13 pm

Hello just wanted to know. If the dough hardens and dries without cracking???? And if you can paint it while still moist????? Need for a church craft for the kids. Thanks in advance

#51Khadija’s Creative MindAugust 17, 2013, 10:34 am

Yes dear you can use food colors too,(available in powder form.)
And they can be used for 3,4 months if packed in air tight bag & jar.

The dough will not be cracking after getting dry.and if you feel moist dont paint, let it dry, then paint :)

Thanks everyone!!

#52JetteSeptember 7, 2013, 2:47 am

#53Khadija’s Creative MindSeptember 14, 2013, 11:03 am

#56cynthiaNovember 20, 2013, 8:18 am

hi ur post seems to be very interesting .. and i feel that i should try it out one day . but i have a doubt do we have to heat it ?? i mean the glue lemon and the cornflour mix??? and can we use fevicol??? plz do reply..

#57Khadija’s Creative MindNovember 21, 2013, 9:17 am

Hi Cynthia,
Heating this dough is not compulsory but if you will do it for a few seconds, it will be getting smoother..
And I can not recommend fevicol, because I have never tried with that..
Thanks :)

#58PunithaDecember 27, 2013, 10:42 am

Dear Khadiga
This Dough clay recipes are really interesting can you kindly answer how to make designs by using dough clay. Is any molds available for designs? and any other alternative is available for colouring?
Thanks & Regards

#59Khadija’s Creative MindJanuary 3, 2014, 5:16 pm

Hi..you can create different designs with cutters which are usually used for cooking & baking.. you can also mix any fabric colors in the dough. be sure to not to have any water based color in it.
Thank you.

#60lesflo12February 22, 2014, 3:36 pm

Do you just air dry this to make it hard? Do you have to varnish it after it dries?

#61Khadija’s Creative MindFebruary 23, 2014, 8:18 am

Yes Lesflo12, I only air dry these.no baking or any other way! And for varnish, when it will get dry, apply a single coat of modpodge gloss. I did it.

#62lesflo12February 23, 2014, 6:36 pm

Thank you so much, for returning my questions answer, so promptly, I appreciate it immensely. I would love to try this as soon as possible just need to buy the glue and then I will try it, can’t wait!!! Yay! And thank you again Khadija, you are truly fantastic!

#63Khadija’s Creative MindFebruary 25, 2014, 11:52 am

So nice of you :) Thanks! Let me know/show whatever you done with your handmade dough.

#64soniMarch 22, 2014, 7:15 am

i made dough but it does’t shine………. what i do…? :(

#65Khadija’s Creative MindMarch 22, 2014, 10:20 am

soni ;
for the shine, I apply mod podge gloss on the dough creation. so try any sealer glue & see if it works for you!
Thanks soni :)

#66mariumApril 9, 2014, 10:46 am

hi h r u khadija
want to know we will cook the dough or not??????
n tell me what is lacquer spray?

#67Khadija’s Creative MindApril 9, 2014, 11:05 am

Hi Marium,
I am fine Alhamdulillah.
You don’t need to cook or bake this dough, and a lacquer spray is kind of varnish. for shine and sealing the surface!
