My First Day at Porcelain Painting With Norehan Kassim

Today, I tried my hand at porcelain (or China) painting for the first time. I attended a workshop carried out by Norehan Kassim at Kelopak Galleri in Shah Alam. It was very interesting and exciting and it was totally different from acrylic painting. I learnt to paint hydrangeas on a large white tile. No patterns or tracing were required. It was all free-hand drawing using my imagination. The result can be seen in the photo. However, this is only the first stage. The next stage is to send it for first firing before having to paint further on it for the 3D effect. Can't wait to get to learn roses as these are done very differently from how we paint with acrylic. Yet the whole look in porcelain painting is soft and dreamy. I may just try this technique with acrylic and glass and tile medium.
