Porcelaine 150 can be applied to all heat-stable bases that are able to withstand a temperature of 150°C (300°F), such as porcelain, china, glazed earthenware, terracotta, metal, enamelled sheet steel, copper and glass. The choice of base enables numerous effects to be produced and experiments to be made with the transparency and intensity of the colours.
Many applications are possible with Porcelaine 150 : with brushes and also with sponge, stencil... The Porcelaine 150 outliners, in tube with nozzle, can be used for outlining work. The markers are recommended for lines and writing.
Colours can be fluidized with the Porcelaine 150 thinner. To produce a matt finish, add a few drops of matt medium to the colour before application. The gloss medium can be used to lighten colours without thinning them.
The colours are applied directly to a perfectly degreased base with alcohol or soapy water. After observing the required drying time (minimum 24 hours), place the decorated object in a cold oven. When the temperature of the oven has reached 150°C (300°F), bake for 35 minutes. Colours have then a real enamelled look and resist dishwashing.
