Tips for working with Craft Porcelain from Linda Peterson. She says: "It's not a new medium, though it is maybe an unfamiliar one. I first introduced this air dry clay on The Carol Duvall show a couple of years ago. It is definately one of the shows that I would consider one of my 'hits'."
In that comment, Linda is referring to the commercially available Craft Porcelain (by Amaco) and not necessarily the homemade cold porcelain paste we've often referred to on this blog. Products are very similar .... but I'm told by those who've used both products that there some difference in the handling characteristics between this brand and the homemade paste. Around the world there are many other brands of cold porcelain commercially available at reasonable prices...but in USA, not so much. Not yet, anyway! ;-)
Linda goes on to say: "Today I was again working with Craft Porcelain clay doing the designer thing in trying to 'stretch' its limits and see what you can mix in...and what you can't. I have several 'test' pieces lying on the workbench drying." Click here to read more about her experiments.
Have you tried both Craft Porcelain and homemade cold porcelain? Would you post a comment about your experience and give us your opinion?
