Well, I decided to write a journal entry about it n.n
Cold porcelain is an handmade type of clay, and do not need to be baked, it is air drier clay. It is
basically made of white glue and ccorn starch. Need to add preservatives. It can be coloured
with almost any kind of paint, but on Brazil is common to use fabric paint.
So, there is some answers:
1) Where do I buy it?
Well, I don't know where do you can buy it on your country =/ but you can try to find
on some webstore.
I do not recommend to buy it on some webstore. Why? Well, Cold Porcelain is made from
a handmade way, and it is a kind of air dry clay, and it start to harden even inside the package.
So, you can buy if from the webstore, and when it cames to your house, may find that it is
already too hard.
If you find some place that sells it, make sure the paste is soft.
2) The name envolves the "porcelain" word. It is fragile?
It is fragile only if you do thin and without armature pieces.
It is called porcelain because it was created on Italy to imitate Chinese porcelain.
3) So, it is handmade, how can I made it?
There is to ways:
- microwave oven
I especially prefer and find it easier to do using the microwave oven.
The best tutorials about cold porcelain are in Portuguese or Spanish. The best I found in English
is this one:www.youtube.com/watch?v=ehn8yE…
I do not make my pastes, because, on my country, is less expensive to buy, and does a lot of dirt.
4) It is better than polymer clay or super sculpey?
About the polymer clay, I can't answer this questions because I never used. We have FIMO to buy here,
but it is very expensive.
We do not have Super Sculpey to buy here, then, I never used it either u.u
And, to finish, I found an video that show how to colour the mass, but is in portuguese.
I do not want you to understand it on video, I only put it here to show to you the "paste texture"www.youtube.com/watch?v=jkQfVN…
I hope I have helped answer your questions!
