Q&A with dottyeb

audreybob169131 asked:
Your lamp is beautiful. I have painted on wine glasses and carafts but i used enamel paint and baked them in the oven. I have tried the porcelain painting and can not master it. I am an oil painter on canvas right now.
dottyeb answered:
Kudos to you on your artistic talent. I love porcelain/china painting, and am particularly fond of painting lamps. I got started with lamps when we bought some at auctions that had broken globes or shades. So we would bring them home and I bought replacement shades and painted and fired them to match the existing fonts. It is a challenge, but very rewarding. I too love oil painting. I am very partial to oil paint sticks. They are so versatile. Good luck in all your endeavors. Obviously you are very talented!!!
