Painting Techniques

Traditional/classical technique

Flowers, landscapes and fruits are typical subjects of the traditional technique. Overglaze powder colours are mixed with oil and applied to the porcelain with a brush, a pen or a sponge. The first step is putting a first layer of peint, then drawing the contours and finally painting the shadows, always with intermediate firing after every step. The application of matt gold completes the piece.

Luster technique

For the modern motifs, the fantasy has no limits. Special colors, like lusters in liquid form, are applied with a brush, a pen, a sponge, by immersion or letting the colors run free on the piece, etc. Then follows the application of brilliant gold or platinum, copper or bronze. With intermediate firings.

Indian painting

Far Eastern painting with the corresponding motifs. This technique differs from the traditional one in that the contours and the shadows are done first and then follows the application of the ground colour (which corresponds to the first step in the traditional technique). With intermediate firings.

Glass technique

Glass is painted with appropriate colours. Their transparency and application to both sides of the glass create a three-dimensional effect.

Open oil technique

Also called the soft american technique. The colors are mixed with open oil which does not dry. Several layers of wet paint are put on top of each other. The results are delicate contours and a play of lights and shadows. Usually with only one firing.

Mixed technique

The traditional and the luster technique can be combined as you please, which produces unusual and fascinating results.

Scandinavian technique

This technique consists in chipping off the glaze of the porcelain. Therefore, a chip-off powder is applied, fired and then removed. This allows to create very special effects.

Relief technique

Application of a paste that hardens when fired and joins together with the porcelain. This technique allows decorations and modern designs. By adding glass or sand to the reliefs you will obtain particularly attractive results.

Moulding

With porcelain paste you can create objects according to your wishes. After drying and polishing follows the firing of the biscuit, then the glazing with following firing. The piece is now ready to be coloured with each technique.
