    I may have missed something here, but I'm fairly certain you need to put clay into a recipe to make clay- kaolin, goldenart, that sort of thing. It gets other stuff, too, like feldspar and oxides and water and such and such, but there should be clay (or an intricate combination of clays). What you're mixing sounds more like paper mache or DIY wall paper paste.

    Anyway, mixing clay is kind of an ordeal. If you're just starting out, you might be better off buying small amounts of some different kinds to find what you like, then you'll know if you want a clay recipe that is more rigid or drier or more elastic, etc.
