Hello there! I’m taking a break from my salted-caramel-eating, ugly-christmas-sweater-making, carol-singing, old-school-christmas-movie-watching, gift-wrapping week to stop in and share our Christmas decorations! The late-Thanksgiving threw me a bit this year, and I am behind on my gift shopping. 😐 Normally I have everything in-order a few weeks in advance, but not this year.

This is always a joyous,  but slightly harried time of year, and there’s nothing I love more than ending a long day in front of the glowing tree lights with a cup of tea.

We cut down our own tree again this year. Meaning my husband chopped, and I gathered branches for the mantle and cheered “timber!”. designlivelychristmasdecor2The bunting is just burlap triangles I drew on with sharpie and loop-stitched together.

This year we hung exterior wreaths on all the windows. I love it! It’s nice to have decorations outside during the day (when the lights can’t…

How to use Clay Conditioning Lotion For Cold Porcelain Clay

ImageStacie Laurell launched a new product called Clay Conditioning Lotion. This lotion is a necessity for clay artists or anyone working with this special type of clay. First I’ll tell you a little more about Cold Porcelain Clay. 
What is air dry cold porcelain? 
Cold Porcelain clay is a special type of clay that many artist around the world use. It is not your average Fimo or Premo clay nor is it play dough or kids craft clay. 
Cold Porcelain is a smooth modeling clay and looks like porcelain when dried. It is not plastic-like as clays like Fimo and Premo that are bought in the stores. Instead, this clay can be manipulated to look like almost any medium such as glass, porcelain China, marble, Pearls, ceramics and more. This particular clay recipe is listed all over the internet and is usually made with regular house hold items, such as cornstarch, water & mineral oil. Although the recipe may seem easy many people have trouble making this clay or mastering the right formula. 

  This clay primarily originated in Argentina and is very popular over there. In fact, it is also becoming rapidly popular in the United States as well. Some are abandoning their love for oven baked polymer clay and flocking towards cold porcelain clay.  One great benefit of porcelain clay is it’s ability to stretch into very thin pieces, allowing artist to make such things as delicate flowers and bouquets that looks life like but last forever. Although it can be stretched to amazing capacity, when dried, the stretched piece is very strong and durable and doesn’t break or tear easily. Some people have tried to sell other clay and market it as cold porcelain clay but it is not. Cold porcelain clay properties are distinctive and if you pay attention to the abilities of this clay, you can compare and see if you’ve purchased real cold porcelain verses the imitation.  Stacie Laurell’s Cold Porcelain clay is made with a special recipe. Our clay’s consistency can be changed or altered by you. If you encourage your clay to be more firm or you can make it as soft or fluid as you would like with our special Clay Conditioning Lotion.  

Our lotion can help with several things such as:

  • Conditioning and softening your clay
  • changing the texture of your clay
  • restore moisture to clay that is old and may be starting to dry out
  • can restore clay back to original state after clay has been frozen or placed in the fridge
  • Help keeps your clay moist and from drying out while working with it
  • help condition your clay to prevent cracks in your finished pieces
  • helps to correct flaws and cracks in finished pieces. 
  • extends the shelf life of air dry clay
If you are a clay artist or just love working with cold porcelain but sure to stop by our store and pick up a bottle of our clay conditioning lotion 🙂  http://www.ebay.com/itm/Clay-conditioning-Lotion-Stacie-Laurell-/130977065566?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item1e7ed76a5e
