How To Make Dough For Handmade Jewelry & Crafts Making

It’s been long I have shared any of my dough crafts or jewelry. The reason behind this is shortage of time. I am more busy with my online work as well as business projects now, So handmade work is a bit ignored now. I miss past blogging days, I remember one of my dough making tutorial blog post went viral & got huge appreciation by my dear readers worldwide. That article pinned more than two thousand times. Few days back someone ask me about homemade dough & it’s crafts. So I thought I should try this again.  Here today I am sharing How To Make Dough For Handmade Jewelry & Crafts Making. I hope you will find it interesting.

How To Make Dough For Handmade Jewelry & Crafts MakingA friend asked me to teach her dough making & it’s crafts. As I was already missing some handmade crafting so I did it. This is the recipe of handmade dough making.

Recipe of homemade crafts dough :

You will need any transparent glue, Vaseline, Lemon juice & all purpose flour for making this dough.

How To Make Dough For Handmade Jewelry & Crafts MakingStep One –

Filter one cup flour in any bowl or plate. Add almost 3 table spoons of white glue. Add One table spoon Vaseline & One table spoon lemon juice.

How To Make Dough For Handmade Jewelry & Crafts MakingMix all together & knead well. In start you will think your dough is not gonna make as it might be hard & not mixing well together. You need to knead more & if its still rough add some more glue until it gets smooth. DO NOT MIX WATER ANYWAY. The whole thing is kneading well with hands. You can put it in your microwave oven for 1 minute at lowest temperature. It will dry your dough completely if there is any water moisture in it. DO NOT HEAT MORE THAN A MINUTE.

Grease any plastic bag with Vaseline & save the dough in it. You will save this in any air tight jar & can use it for one month easily. This will not get dry soon if in air tight jar.

After making the dough I was going to teach my friend how to make flowers & other decorative items with dough But guess what happened?

I forgot how to make dough flowers. Strange? Yeah it is. Then I google it “Dough flowers making” I was so happy & surprised to see dough flowers making tutorials on the first page of Google by Creative Khadija. Isn’t it strange yet funny that I was learning via Google but from me. Haha. So I check my blog archives via Google & got it how I made these flowers in past.

How To Make Dough For Handmade Jewelry & Crafts MakingHere are dough flowers now, Some of these are made by me & some are by my student friend. These are not so neat & perfect as I had no practice & my student was also new to this thing. So we just experiment making these flowers.

How To Make Dough For Handmade Jewelry & Crafts MakingSo in a few days, Me & my student come up with these little dough thingies.

You can also add colors to your dough when it’s soft. Otherwise you can paint it. Dough flour was pure white but after getting dry this turned off white. You can paint it or spray paint it. For mixing colors in the dough, You can add any acrylic paints or fabric paints in it. Water based paints will not work well. Use any fabric paints please. Otherwise your dough creation might caught by fungus later.

Are you excited to see my next blog post in which I will be sharing my craft or decore with these dough flowers? Wait for my next post then. I have a very cool & easy decoration idea for you friends.

You can also have a look at my previous dough & crafts creations.

In case if your dough making experiment went wrong & there is a lump. Don’t worry & make something out of the trash lump. I made this paper weight of the dough when it turned dry in my cupboard once & later I found it, I design it. Enjoy the tutorial.

    I’m going to try this. I bought polymer clay but my mom won’t let me put that in the oven so I’ll try this ?

      Sure try this. There is no issue putting polymer clay in microwave oven :) I remember once I burnt a polymer clay pendant. Lowest heat is okay #lesson. Don’t forget to show me your creativity then! Thanks

    i have a question, is this the same as polymer clay or different? and in either case will it be okay if kept underwater? i’m actually interested in making stuff using polymer clay for my aquarium as decor and came across your recipe so was just curious..

    • Reply Khadija's Creative Mind April 10, 2017 at 8:59 am

      No Samaha, It is not polymer clay & totally different. There is no chemical or thing in it. So definitely it will not work well underwater. If you want to make charms for your aquarium, try ceramic dough. I havent yet tried that so I have no idea how it works. My dough is not okay with water. All the best :) Thank you for writing!
