If you have ever wanted to know how to make your own cold porcelain clay, I have found the best recipe for you and it is the one I use to make my air dry clay. You can download the free printable below.
Cold porcelain clay is an air dry clay which has a translucent quality to it when it dries, if you don’t add any colour pigment to it, a little bit like porcelain, hence the name.
