Cold Porcelain - Recipes

Recently I've been studying the modeling clay patents and have been surprised that the older compounds are similar to the products offered today. A friend needs a way to sculpt a wedding cake topper and and decorations for the favors. She does not want to use polymer clay and we think that cold porcelain will give her the delicacy and translucent quality she desires. The following links provide a wealth of information.

  1. I'm fascinated by cold porcelain, too. I first learned about it after doing that clay podcast. I had tried a simpler cornstarch clay recipe, which was lovely in the hand, but fell apart upon drying. A listener then wrote me about cold porcelain, which has the missing durability. These are great links - thank you!
