I'm looking and looking, and am wondering: Did you use some kind of transparent paint, or a see-through stain (maybe watercolor?)? At first I thought that maybe you had used Diamond Glaze...

Ahh yeah, watercolor paints but no glaze. I guess it's because they weren't completely dry do they appear... wet?

Clear nail polish, by the way, has no longevity (I found that out the hard way) so until I order in some Sculpey Glaze, I left the rest unpainted/unglazed

I'm not sure why that happened (and what exactly did happen re "longevity"?) since all air dry clays should be fine with most all clear sealers (or acrylic paints, etc), including clear fingernail polishes, as long as they are completely dried first.  Since cold porcelain can take a more than a day (or even up to a week to thoroughly dry), did you perhaps just coat the cold porcelain too soon?

I didn't suspect it would take longer than a day to dry actually. I glazed them over the next day. The reason I said that it doesn't last long is because for the one piece that I glazed it with and wore, the polish wore away and the paint underneath started chipping off. I figured that it was because I used nail polish since... the same thing happens on our nails. Undecided

This is it only three days of daily wear (showers included... maybe that's why?) :

I'm definitely looking into polyurethane! THANK YOU for making it so much more simpler. And also for your tips and those links, they contain loads of useful information - I've been checking them out since last night!

Wow, they almost look glazed.

omg! yes i think they looked glazed to me to. how did you do that? just the lighting or are they really glazed?

No no, they're not glazed, it's just the lighting. Glazing is actually a good idea though Smiley

Bits of hearts,
Of paint on paper,
On wood and dust,
Here and there.

Whimsical things made for future scrapbook pages or ATCs. I painted them on the Classifieds and newspaper pages, outlined them with ink pen and then cut them out, not sticking to a margin.

I love those tiny stars, especially the silver one! I know of a another way to make beaded stars but they're different from yours... do you think you can post a tutorial on it? They're gorgeous.

So neat. Love what you did.

Was wondering, I read the link and a lot of people had problems with cracks during drying. How'd that go for you?

That did happen to some. I avoided it by making sure the surfaces were clean - like when we tend to fold the clay over itself, I smoothed out the surface as best as I could. It minimized the cracking to almost none at all. Since it's air-dry, it's easy to check up on them to see if they're drying okay (I was more concerned about how they shrink).
