I know this instructions are a bit old, but I found it just now. Just in case anyone wants to try it, following the link you can find a couple recipes for the "cold porcelain" clay in English.

benvandam (author)2007-10-08

What is the name of the clay you use? Can you sand it? Paint it? Excellent work btw.

Ciber1977 (author)WurdBendur2010-02-20

Yes. exactly

Ciber1977 (author)benvandam2007-10-08

The name of the clay is porcelana fria (in spanish). I dont know tha name in English: is similar to "play doh" or "plastilina" but it hardens. You can sandt it and paint it with every paint. greetings from Argentina.

Homer's cool, Carlos! Nice job. The only thing I'd add--use the 'text box' option for pictures. Click and drag your mouse over the pic, and a little text box will pop up. Add some text tip there to detail your techniques. When a viewer moves their mouse over the yellow box (you made by dragging), the note will pop up. I've always thought this was one of the coolest things about the instructables interface... You can add more than one to a picture, too. You don't need to be in 'edit' mode, just logged in to do this (at least with Firefox.)
