The Porcelain Body contained in this package is of entirely different composition from any ever before put on the market. It fuses at a low heat, and is finer grained, tougher and stronger than any porcelain body on the market. it should always be allowed to cool down as slowly as possible, as the slower it is cooled down the tougher and stronger it will be.
