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.

    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!

      Cornflour is different from corn starch actually! but you can try with cornstarch, that will be fine as well.

      Hi Aarti,
      Were you trying my above recipe of homemade dough? If yes then add one tbsp glue and knead well again and see if it gets smooth! then apply vaseline to your hands and start kneading well again. I hope your dough (if you tried my recipe) will be getting perfect again!
      Let me know then :)
      Thank you.
