I love Cold porcelain Clay
COLD PORCELAIN PASTE CHARMS
Hello there, I make my own cold porcelain paste. I did try many recipes from the internet. I made cold porcelain paste around 8 different times and they all came out bad!
....but I came up with my own way of making the cp paste in the microwave (cooking it in a pan on the cooker is a nightmare)!!
HERE'S SOME NO NO's
[Dont! add water to cold porcelain paste it will make it crack
Dont! put your clay project near a window with DRAFT OR IN ANY ROOM THAT HAS COLD AIR COMING IN IT WILL MAKE IT CRACK!
I have also tried many different clays that are air dry:
I have tried "New clay" - stay away from it its a nightmare it cracks more than a 100 year old person LOL!! and falls apart when it has dried :-(
The best cheaper air dry clays that I know of are cold porcelain clays: "makin clay"
Good luck to everyone working with cold porcelain. I hope my little report helps!

Thanks so much for your interesting report and great tips. I am sure it will be of great help to many of our visitors.
A special thanks for uploading a photo of your work - very fun and colourful.***UPDATE***Hey Guys! Peter (admin) here. I feel I must intervene on Nicole's behalf here!!
She has had lots of with people asking for her full recipe. She is a working artist not a hobbyist and although she can give tips and help, she can't give away her recipe for free.
I think her research and expertise requires those of us who would like her recipe to donate a small fee (I feel it quite right she wants to protect it - after all, anyone could steal it and start charging!).
So I have set up a special page for you to access her tried and tested recipe (but return to this page to ask Nicole any questions you might have)....
