Porcelain Unlimited is my business name and also it is perfect to describe what I do. The pieces that are available to be creative on are unlimited. They range from cups and saucers to tiles that can be painted with portraits, scenes, florals to be framed and hung on your walls. Sinks and water tanks that can be painted and used to decorate your bathrooms. Wall tiles can be painted and used to decorate any wall in any room with any design and colors you would personally prefer.
When the porcelain pieces are fired (1400 degrees f. or hotter), the paint moves under the glaze. This makes the porcelain completely washable and so easy to maintain for an indefinite period of time.
When the porcelain and glass pieces are completed they have the wonderful look of elegance and quality just as they did hundreds of years ago.
The Gold that is painted on these pieces does not go under the glaze, it rests on top of the piece. This is the reason why, if you purchase antiques and the gold looks as if it has been rubbed off. This is true because years of using them will wear off the gold.
Another media that excites me is painting on glass. This is the same procedure with the exception that glass can be fired no hotter that 1100 degrees f.
Painting takes me many places to teach including schools and painters homes.
I have retired from being the director of the Cazenovia School. Dallas china has it now and I wish the luch and good fortune.
I have been a Willoughby Distributor since 1991 and I sell their complete line of paints and supplies. Willoughby paints have been in business for many years and once you purchase a Willoughby color, 5 years later you can purchase the same color.
Brushes are Aqua Flow brushes from Heinz Scharff. These brushes are a combinatiion of natural and synthetic hairs and accomodate many different mediums.
My Lusters are a wonderful collection of European Lusters that can be used on porcelain and glass..
Glass painting is another phase. I do love to paint on Polish Glass because it gives the finished piece a beautiful quality appearance.
Please go to the Gallery where you will see the more of my experience with Commissioned portraits, gifts, sinks and tile murals for the home and business. I always use the exact products that I sell.
