Cold porcelain

Yesterday I was invited to a friend's house to learn how to make cold porcelain (or biscuit) as it's called over here in Brazil. This is a technique that apparently started in Argentina and is very very popular in Brazil. There are some Brazilian websites here (she also has things in English), here and here. The paste is extremely easy to make (the link above has a slightly different recipe from the one we used but I'm sure that'll work as well) and it can be moulded by hand or using small silicone molds.



You have to excuse me for the quality of the pictures. The light was all funny and somehow the macro wasn't working as I wanted it to... I'll post more pictures as I get something done myself. We'll have our following lesson next Wednesday and I have some homework to do :)
It's great fun and highly addictive. I borrowed some molds off my friend but I'm dying to get my own already! The opportunities are endless and we just bought a magazine full of great ideas and models.

Onko nuo ekassa kuvassa olevat silikonivuokia tai niitä töitä mitä teitte? Kuulostaa tosi mielenkiintoiselta ja heti heräsi halu kokeilla....
