What are you most proud of? I am partial to painting roses, and my painting reflects the attention to detail and the natural fragility of the lovely rose. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Find a good teacher in your area to get the proper instruction for mixing and using porcelain and glass paints. The painting I do is NOT the type promoted by craft stores. The paints I used are powdered mineral based paints mixed with an oil medium for application. After they are applied the painted object has to be fired to a temperature of 1125F degrees. It is not an art form for the faint of heart, and it takes great patience and willingness to learn the proper painting techniques.
