People always ask me how I do this. Each piece of china is painted and fired in a kiln to a temperature of 1800 degrees multiple times. Here's some pictures of how it progresses:

Brushes used are very soft and they are oiled and then the oil pressed out on a paper towel prior to going into the paints. Unlike other types of painting very little paint is loaded on the brush. Your brush "kisses" the porcelain as you paint.
