How to Condition AMACO Craft Porcelain Clay


Michelle Zimmerman's tips and tricks for conditioning Craft Porcelain clay for bead making:

  • If the clay is sticky to the touch, pull a bead size piece from the clay and work in your hand until it warms up and until the outside dries sufficiently that the clay forms a thin skin much like bread dough.
  • If the clay is hard and does not give easily when pressed between your thumb and forefinger, wet your hand slightly with water and knead the clay. If it gets so wet that it sticks to your hand, continue working it until the piece of clay picks up the porcelain that is stuck to your hand. Continue until it feels warm to the touch and it forms a ball with a slight skin. You are now ready to make your bead.
  • Form the clay into an approximate bead shape in your hand, place the clay in the bead roller to roll the final shape.
