Cold Porcelain Paste has been in this country for almost 20 years, Meryl Marriott has been teaching different techniques with the paste for 18 years. It is air drying, no kiln or oven is required in the drying process, when dry it is quite hard and durable. The paste can be rolled out and cut with metal or plastic cutters, similar to the way you would work with sugar paste. If making flowers each petal or leaf would then be thinned or frilled on the edge with either a ball or needle tool, it can then be placed on the prepared centre, of a flower, or wire if a leaf, a very small amount of PVA glue is used to adhere it in place. Just look at the beautiful results that can be achieved in a one day workshop.
