Dear Crafsters,

Im thinking about making a snowball in class. But instead of using regular polymer clay for the figure inside, I thought about making it out of home made cold porcelain.

So I was wondering if cold porcelain would be water soluble? Maybe there would be nothing left of our figurines within the following months?  Huh

Does anybody have some experience with this topic?

Id be very thankful for any help with this topic!

All I keep thinking is that it would hurt to get hit by a clay snowball!

Never worked with cold porcelain, what's the recipe? Sounds like something that would be fun to play with!

I made cold porcelain before and it was fun to work with - but I wonder how water resistant it is.  It has craft glue in it, but also cold cream, glycerine, and corn starch if I remember correctly, and is cooked, so maybe after they air dry, if you add a couple of layers of clear coat, they may be more resistant.

Another option too is air dry 2 part resins like Apoxie Clay or Apoxie Sculpt - they definitely dry hard and water proof, even without a finish applied.

Are you  making them to throw at each other?

I think s/he means one of those clear glass balls with a scene, water/glycerine, and fake snow inside.

I don't think cold porcelain would hold up, polymer clay would be better.  Also, any paints would have trouble in a wet application like that

I am very glad about your reply!
Youre probably right!

I havent started such a project yet. It was planed for a school class. But I was interested, if anybody had made this experience.
