Hailing from Argentina, this original art form is cheap, non-toxic and very easy to work with.
Though its name suggests otherwise, it's not in fact porcelain, though it looks just as stunning.
Many of the ingredients are biodegradable, so we use lemon juice to prevent bacteria and fungi growth.
To color your art work you can use any paint or food coloring you like, even lipstick will do the trick.
Do not put your work in the refrigerator but allow it to dry for one day at normal room temperature.
None of your sculptures will crack, chalk or crumble.
However, if you add water to them, or heat them they will soften and dissolve - so do not use them for any crockery.
With a bit of practice, soon you will be making beautiful little artworks.
Think of all the gifts you could make!
Without spending much money, but by giving your time and effort you will really impress people.
Even your pets will be fooled by your life-like creations.
