Classes

Porcelain painting classes are held 4 to 5 days a week. There are morning sessions from 11am to 1.30 pm and afternoon classes from 3 to 5.30 pm.

Most students come once a week, on a fixed day.

Porcelain painting is very different from other forms of painting, mainly because the surface you paint on is not absorbent. The paints we use are in powder form and need to be ground with a variety of oils depending on what and how you intend to paint.

Paints, oils, brushes etc are all available in a starter kit. As you go along,you can keep adding supplies and colours that we source both locally and internationally.

All pieces are fired in a kiln(in India, it is often referred to as a chemical muffler ) upto 780*c.

Some pieces are fired upto 4/5 times to acheive the desired effect.

Besides overglaze paints we also use liquid lustres and liquid gold, which, as the name suggest produce lustrous effects .

It’s truly an unusual and extremely gratifying medium for artistic expression.
