This is the first craft I did for Ramadan – and actually, this gave me the idea of undertaking the challenge of a 15 day Ramadan crafts.
The cold porcelain ingredients:
- 1/2 cup Glue
- 1/2 cup Corn starch
- 1 teaspoon Oil
- 1 teaspoon Lemon juice
In a microwave safe bowl, I mixed the glue & cornstarch thoroughly and then added lemon and oil to it and mixed again, till it was well combined. Then I put the Bowl in a microwave for 30 sec. Once it was out it was pretty much liquid is, I mixed it again and popped it back in the Microwave for another 30 sec. This time it was a semi-solid mass which started to come together. (see no. 5). At this point, I put it aside to let it cool a bit and transferred it to a wax paper with some cornstarch sprinkled on it.
I kneaded it a bit to the point a tear drop forms when you pull the dough apart. Then just store it in a ziplock.
Once you have the porcelain dough ready, you can make million of things with it. I chose to do the easiest. I rolled a bit of dough and hand-drew small crescent onto it and cut it using a blade.
Then I cut a star and colored both yellow. I also painted glitter on it too.
Normally, cold porcelain is air dry porcelain and it is left for 24-48 hours to completely dry. But well, it was a long wait. So I just put it in a microwave for 1 minute. It came out awesome so I put it back to the microwave for another minute. This time it was slightly blackened, but was so hard already! Brilliant I thought! 😉
Then I just used a floss to attach the star with the crescent and glued a loop on the top.
It was awesome, we loved it 🙂
This marked the end of my 15-day Challenge. I decided to do interesting, different but easy crafts and I hope I served the purpose. Happy Ramadhan everyone 🙂
