Today I almost didn't get something in. My Dad was admitted to the hospital with congestive heart failure last night and I was going to just forget this, this week but I thought maybe I need to concentrate on something else. So here I am. I'm looking to checking out some of the other blogs before I go to the hospital this morning.
Well this week's PPF for me is a piece of porcelain. It's china painted on porcelain. Some paint on canvas, some on paper....I do that too but I also paint on porcelain.
China paints come as dry paint pigments that are mixed with oil. Each piece is painted multiple times and then fired in between each firing in the kiln. It takes several firings to reach the desired colors and look. This particular piece took me 4 firings to achieve the look I was going for. Don't you just love this sweet little face?
If you like her, she's available in my Etsy shop. Here's the link:
