From the album: Miniatures "Things" I've madeToilet and sink made using homemade cold porcelain, ( my toilet actually flushes water..fill the tank, push the handle and watch the water disappear ), roll top bread box, leather mules for Barbie. Cold porcelain......easy to make, put in air tight container it will last for months and not rot, easy to work with, no baking, drys as fast as school glue and hard as a rock almost...hard enough to carve like wood and sand too. Recipe For a lump about the size of a golf ball ---- 1/4 c Cornstarch 1/8 c School Glue ..doesn't have to be school glue, any white glue or craft glue will work. 1tsp Mineral Oil....baby oil is ok as well as face cream like Noxzema, maybe even olive oil or coconut oil- sewing machine oil? LOL ....worth a try! Ive used mineral oil and Noxzema ...both worked fine except Noxzema is too smelly. Put the 3 ingredients into a container and stir until it starts clumping into chunks, then using your fingers, need the clumps together..adjust the consistency adding more corn starch to firm it up or more glue to moisten... You will know the consistency is correct when the inside of the container looks clean as well as your fingers.
