Homemade Dough/Clay Recipe

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..

Homemade Dough/Clay Recipe

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.

    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?

    • Khadija's Creative Mind  /  December 24, 2012, 10:11 am Reply

      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..!!

    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

  30. Khadija's Creative Mind  /  August 17, 2013, 10:34 am Reply

    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!!

  36. Khadija's Creative Mind  /  November 21, 2013, 9:17 am Reply

    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 :)

    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.
