“This DIY air dry clay is as easy as pie to make,” Clay It Now writes of this ‘cold porcelain’ baking soda clay recipe, “and the results are absolutely fantastic – sturdy & crack free.”

Cold porcelain is a clay that resembles the smooth white appearance of traditional porcelain. Especially popular in South America, the grain-based sculpting medium can be used by professional artists and crafty kids alike.

The ingredients in this homemade air dry clay are natural, cost-effective, and easy to findβ€”flour, corn starch, water, a sheet of toilet paper, and baking soda. And while other cold porcelain mixes might require some cooking or a different mix of ingredients, the common factor is that they don’t require baking/firing in a kiln.
