    According to the calculator, porcelain is Columbia, mottled, and lavender on one of the red bases. Since lavender and mottled are recessive genes the parents have to have two copies of those genes so each offspring will get those genes. The Columbia is a dominant gene so it’s possible the parent may not be pure for that gene but they should be.

    So yes, porcelain over porcelain should give you porcelain.
