How to Sculpt Doll Hands and Feet with CP


Bebidoll demonstrates modeling hands and feet for a doll made with cold porcelain.


In this second video,  Bebidoll sculpts a dolls head with cold porcelain. She's using techniques more often seen with polymer clay than cold porcelain.   Her doll's face has a more realistic look to it than the typical 'cute' face seen on cold porcelain dolls.

Make This Cute Dalmatian

Dalmatian Puppy
This adorable creature can be a great gift or cake topper
Would you like to make the Dalmatian dog shown in the header for Cold Porcelain Cuties?  Simple, basic shapes are used to create this cute puppy with photos every step of the way to show you how.  

Tutorial was translated to English from Porcelana Fria magazine and was written especially for cold porcelain paste. You could also try making the Dalmatian with other types of air-dry clay or make another kind of dog simply by changing the colors used.   Enjoy!

Note:   If you would like to make a slightly simpler dog, see this video demo of a little brown puppy.

Another hair demonstration!


This video demo from Donna Lane will show you how she applies hair to her cute figures using a clay gun.  This is actually a video demo for gumpaste, but the process is exactly the same for cold porcelain....just use regular glue where needed instead of "edible" glue!

This video stops suddenly before she adds the bangs to the hairdo. There's suppose to be a "Part 2" to this demo but I can't find it posted anywhere.   I'll post this Part One for you because it seems to contain most of the demo.  If you know where Part 2 is....please leave a comment and let us know!!  ;-)

Materials needed:
Cold porcelain
Styrofoam balls #2 and #3
Toothpicks (for reinforcement)

Make This Cute Kitty


Another excellent 2-part video demo from Marisol Romero, showing us, step-by step, how to make the cute cartoon kitty shown above, using cold porcelain.   Marisol is speaking Spanish in the videos but, even if you don't understand what she is saying, you should be able to follow along easily.  Every step is clearly shown.  This would be a good beginner's project because of the character's simplicity!

You'll note that she lets some parts of the figure dry separately.  This makes them easier to handle when assembling figure.   Prevents squishing the uncured clay parts!!    White glue is used where needed to attach new clay to cured clay and in other places where there may be a weak join.
