Hi and welcome,

Cute minis! ... you should also add photos of the little lambs, etc., in your other post!

stitch markers, made of cold porcelain ...


Btw, I think a lot of people here would be interested in knowing more about the air-dry cornstarch-based clays called "cold porcelain," "craft porcelain," etc --or known primarily by their brand names (in the U.S., we can find only a few brands)-- if you'd like to talk a little more about them.


P.S.  You said in your other post that it was hard to get polymer clay in Brazil so are you aware of the Brazil Polymer Clay Guild and a blog there?... don't know how active they are now, but you might at least be able to find out how to get polymer clay if you want from someone there.  
Here's the info I have at my site:
Polymer Clay Brasil http://www.polymerclaybrasil.com.br
We meet monthly (Saturdays) at Casa do Restaurador (art store). Our website is in portuguese and english. Contact: Vera Pessoa - faleconosco@polymerclaybrasil.com.br

Hello!
Thank you very much for your comments.
Daan, I live in Argentina, a country located south of Brazil, however, your information to me and I can find out if they ship here.
Cold porcelain can be made at home, if someone wants I can give you the recipe and ingredients to prepare it.
Basically it works like the polymer clay except that the dry mass in contact with air, if the final work was not properly protected can spoil when exposed to water.
If you want I can tell you more about this material.
thanks for your comments -

Oh sorry! I was just thinking Brazil for some reason. Embarrassed   You still might be able to get some info from Brazilian polymer clayers though on where they buy their polymer clay.

I have various recipes for homemade versions of cold porcelain-type clay at my site**, but I'd heard that they're really fiddly to make at home and don't usually work as well as the pre-mixed kinds.  Have you had success with a particular recipe, and do you usually make it yourself?

Air-dry clays have to be handled differently from polymer clays in various ways though for shaping, coloring, sealing, etc., but both can create nice sculpted pieces even though the amount of fine detail can differ.   I've seen some beautiful flower sculpts made with cold porcelain clays!
(None of the air-dry clays can do many of the other cool things polymer clays can do though that don't really have anything to do with sculpting--which is the fun stuff for a lot of us Grin-- so in that way they're very different.)
