I just started playing around with these porcelaine paints for the first time this past week. They become permanent by baking them in a home oven for 35 minutes which is so easy and neat.
This is my tester mug (I bought it at the dollar store). I had a hard time getting even lines, and my paint on my palate dried quicker than I would have liked. But at the time I didn't realize I could have thinned the paints with water which would have helped the situation. Alex was honest and told me he wasn't really into it, but I think it was thicker and goopy aspects of the tester he was turned off from. We shall see if I can get it tighter... I do see promise in this project. Plus, it is fun to paint on functional objects. Even if it doesn't turn out to be something I make for my shop, it is exciting to play around with. It would also make for some great birthday presents too. I will share my next trials soon.
