I am personally invested in a lot of the NaMoPaiMo horses, but none more so than Cheryl Farrens' bone China Rosita.
Painting China isn't like painting resin or plastic. Fortunately, Cheryl decided to share pictures of each step in the process. Here's the first one. Her notes read: Clear glaze used was Mayco C105 and fired at cone 06.
The next picture shows the first layer of china paint. Cheryl uses water based china paint for the most part. She finds it dries quicker with less chance of smudging.
This is layer number two...
and layer number three.
Pinking and shading were added after that.
And here she with one of her kiln mates after their final firing.
She is absolutely gorgeous from one end...
to the other!
Thank you for supporting the Jennifer Show and NaMoPaiMo, Cheryl. I'm so glad you won that Rosita. You really did her justice!
