Basic Tips for Crafting Porcelanicron
The work with porcelanicron or cold porcelain, as in any other activity, has its secrets and some practical tricks.
Usually these are discovered with daily practice but there are some basic tips that you should keep in mind before you start working.
I offer you some important suggestions so that you start on the right foot to elaborate your crafts.
They are practical tips that will be very useful when I show you how to make porcelain dolls.
- The most suitable material for gluing the different pieces of a porcelain figure is the vinyl glue.
- To make figures of considerable size, as a thick character, a car, among other pieces.
Figures with a significant solid volume, expanded polystyrene covered with cold porcelain can be placed.
In this way, pasta is saved and the final result is much lighter.
- If when making the dough it is very soft, you can leave it for a while in the open air to dry.
When you lose moisture, you will gain strength and you will be able to work better.
- If otherwise the dough is too hard, you can add a spoonful of glycerin and then knead very well.
In this way we can distribute the substance and make the dough more manageable.
- Unused dough should be stored in airtight containers.
If you leave it in an open space when in contact with the air it dries and hardens, to be more careful before putting it away you can wrap it in kitchen wrap paper.
Store in plastic bags with airtight seal, which are used to freeze food.
And finally put these bags in tight boxes, this is the best way to keep the dough in perfect condition.
- Si decides colorear la masa antes de modelar, debes tener presente que la duración de la misma es menor si se somete a esta pigmentación.
Por esta razón es conveniente pintar solo la porción de masa que vas a utilizar en poco tiempo e ir coloreando luego para trabajos posteriores.
- Cuando se pigmenta la masa conviene saber, que el color adquiere un tono más oscuro cuando se seca a cuando esta húmeda.
También debes procurar no abusar con el exceso de pintura, para evitar que al secarse se forme grietas en la figura.

Model a dough pellet in skin color and flatten it slightly, let it dry and then paint the eyes and mouth with the markers.

The arms that we make need the little hands, that’s why we are going to model two balls of dough in skin color.
