Recipe to make cold porcelain. It's easy and cheap, you'll see!
First you can color it with white paint when you are cooking the paste. Just add 1 teasppon of white acrylic or oil paint into your mix of glue/starch before heating.
Or, you can color it afterwards simply. Take a ball of CP, spread it in your hand, put a little bit of the color you want + a bit a white (this is to make sure the paste will not be too translucent once dried, it is not necessary for red and black) and knead it until the ball of paste become smoothly colored. If you want to know what will really be the color after drying, you can make a small ball of cp and let it dry. the color is much deeper when the cp is totally dried.
the great stuff with cold porcelain is that you don't have to cook it! So once you have your pretty modellings done, you can let them dry out of the air, but make sure to avoid places draughty and too warm. Excessive heat will make your modellings cracking.
You can varnish your creations with marine coating for creations intended to be living into wet rooms, but prefer satin-finish coating for other stuff, since marine coating make CP looks plastic.
