I am more busy with my online work as well as business projects now, So handmade work is a bit ignored now.

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 Jewellery & Crafts Making.

Step Two

Mix all together & knead well. At the 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 main thing is kneading well with hands. You can put it after kneading in your microwave oven for half a minute at the lowest temperature. It will dry moist from your dough completely or if there is any water moisture in it. DO NOT HEAT MORE THAN A MINUTE.

Step Three

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

So 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 to it. Water-based paints will not work well. Use any fabric paints, please. Otherwise, your dough creation might be caught by fungus later. By following these tips about how to make dough for handmade jewelry & crafts making, you can craft something beautiful.

I hope you liked this blog post about How To Make Dough For Handmade Jewelry & Crafts Making. Don’t forget to share your feedback with me :)

Some more questions by the readers, I would like to respond here for all: Is this clay air dry only or can it be baked? This is a no-bake & air dry clay. Do you keep leftovers in properly prepared bags in the fridge or on the counter? Do not put it in the fridge, moisture will make fungus in it. Keep the clay in greased plastic bags & you can save it in the airtight jar for around two weeks. You can paint it when it gets dry. You can seal the object with any sealant or mod podge once it’s totally dry and hard.

I hope you will find my today’s blog post useful for dough & clay crafts. Be sure to check these tutorials from archives. Be sure to share this post on your social media. In case you have some questions, feel free to drop me a DM on Instagram. Thanks
