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.

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.

    Can you please tell me the best adhesive for jewelry making

      Hi Amima, I use UHU transparent glue for jewelry. Silicon with hot glue gun works well but you need to work carefully with it. Movileth German glue is best for dough & clay.

      Hi Anum, Thanks for the feedback. Are you sure you have knead the dough properly? I guess you overheat the dough. You just need to heat it a little. Try adding half tbsp glue and knead again by greasing your hands with Vaseline petroleum jelly. I hope this will be fixed.

      Let me know after trying these tips. I hope your dough will be perfect!

      Thank you for contacting. I have no experience in sculpturing any figure with clay. I make flowers or designs only. So I can not suggest this well. You can try on experimental basis first.
