How to Make Cold Porcelain

Hey everyone! Today I discovered this awesome tutorial on how to make cold porcelain. Cold porcelain isn't actually porcelain at all but is made with white glue, cold cream, glycerin, cornstarch, and water and can be used to make pendants, charms and all kinds of cute little crafts. Beware though, cold porcelain can be dissolved by heat and water - so I guess you won't be making any cups out of it.

The website has a lot of really cute stuff on it and a great FAQ for more information about working with cold porcelain. Check out this video tutorial from them on how to make tiny cold porcelain roses. I'm off to go make some of this myself!
