i like working with cold porcelain
it is easy make dough


3/4 cup of white glue
1 cup cornstarch
1 teaspoon of cold cream*
1 teaspoon of glycerin

Mix wet ingredients until si like working with cold porcelain
it is easy make dough  consists of
mooth over medium heat. Cook for a few minutes and add cornstarch. Stir continually until it forms a ball, remove from pan and mix thoroughly with hands. (I like to cover with a damp cloth until its cool enough to handle) do not refrigerate. Keep in an airtight bag.

Step 1:

we need
cp paste
wire to make tree shape like
water colors
spray varnish

cut different lengths of wire and
wind them together
to make the tree shape
fix it on a base
i used cd case and wrap down
the wire around the middle

Step 2:

start with the upper branches
put a coat of white glue
on the branch and make thin stripe
of the paste , wrap it around the
wire tightly to prevent air pockets
between the wire and the paste

Step 3:

complete the rest of  the branches
to have this tree

Step 4:

make small flowers

Step 5:

make small leaves

Step 6:

now we color the tree with brown color

Step 7:

stick  the flowers and the leaves on the branches

Step 8:

you will see cracks in the tree when the dough dry , do not worry
they make it looks natural

Step 9:

paint the flowers and the  branches
finally use the spray varnish to get
a shiny colors
