|#3 I use only the true ceramic process. |
| || The true ceramic process is the bonding of color to the clay body, as opposed to china painting which is a very low-fired paint that bonds only on the surface of the ware, and is by its nature less durable. When we dig up shipwrecks and ruins of old civilizations, true ceramic ware, along with gold, is the only thing that remains, and is the best evidence of our human history that we have. |
If you use another hand-painter, be sure to ask what process they are using. Many websites do not tell you they are actually doing china painting. It is a far easier, less expensive and slightly less durable method of painting tile.
