- Cornstarch helps Apoxie Sculpt from sticking to you work surface.
- It works better than water for smoothing your Apoxie Sculpt, too.
- When looking for Cold Porcelain recipes, always use ones with some type of oil to prevent your work from cracking.
- Cold porcelain shrinks quite a bit. So sculpt your pieces at least 20 % larger than you want the finished piece.
- Soak your dishes imediately after making this stuff. It's really hard to remove once it's dried.
- Magic markers work great for adding color to small amounts of cold pocelain. But don't use your best markers. I ruined a couple. I used gouache to color a lot of it.

Cold Porcelain and a New Feltie
Loredana Tonetti that I thought was just the sweetest work I'd ever seen and noticed that she said she used cold porcelain. I googled "cold porcelain" to see just what the heck this stuff is. I found out that it's made from some very simple household items and it seemed a lot like a play-dough recipe I used to make for my kids. Here's a link to the recipe I used and some recently learned sculpting tips.
