Learn how to make your own cold porcelain with this fantastic tutorial over at Craftstylish.  Cold porcelain is a soft, safe, air drying clay – similar in texture to polymer clay.  It does not need to be set in an oven like other clays – it air dries to a hard finish.  It can be coloured with oils or acrylics before use, or it can be painted afterwards.
