How to Make Handmade Flowers of Ceramic Dough .
First …. How to Make Ceramic Paste (Dough)
1 cup Cornflour
1 cup white glue
1 tsp glycerin
1/2 tsp Petroleum Jelly
1 tsp lemon juice
1/2 cup water
First beat the glue, water, glycerin, lemon juice and petroleum jelly. Beat it very well that no lumps remains.
Now add cornflour and beat again for more mixing.
Now start cooking, first cook on low flame and when you feel that your dough become thick and forms lumps than increase the flame and stir consistently. You will not stop stirring for a moment even. And don’t you worry if you feel that dough is not smooth.
After 2 to 3 minutes of high flame cooking you see that dough leave the corner and come into a shape of a ball.
When it is perfect? Simply touch the dough if it don’t stick on your finger, it is time to off the stove.
Now we are ready to start making flower, here I want to mention some more things.
Oil colours will be the priority, otherwise you can use acrylics, water colours (tubes), even powdered food colour.
Some different colours stamens, different leaf cutters (optional).Oil colours will become darker after drying so try a little amount. Always use Petroleum jelly when you feel it become sticky.
Here you can see the four colours white, lemon, pink and green
