_DSC0140What is Porcelain painting

Porcelain is a fine kind of ceramic whose name comes from the Italian word porcellana, meaning “cowrie shell”, for its translucent properties.
Porcelain painting is commonly referred to a method of painting on white glazed porcelain objects, using specific pigments and oils, or enamels, called over-glaze paints.
The general method to paint on porcelain consists in applying gradually several layers of paint. After every layer application, the porcelain object needs to be fired in a special oven called kiln. This is also why the multiple layers are called fires. This method is required because too much paint applied at once can create blisters.
