I've worked with china paints on metal. They are super easy, just like painting (with a paint brush). It's not fussy like with sifting. You use oil (painting mixing medium) with the finely powdered color. Rynne China Company sells tiny vials of color and Thompson Enamel sells the painting mixing medium. BUT, your structures are fantastic regardless! LOVE the forms and color. How fun your work is:) Anna
Wow, thank you too:) Have you done any enameling on your structures as well? I will be starting some work with enamels and china paints. Can't wait to get some color on my forms. I just love the elegant color palette your work has. A

I really hope you will enjoy being with this network, and will find the exchanges interesting and fun. The more you put into it, the more you will get out of it, for sure.
Please note that crafthaus is both a fully edited and a member-financed website, meaning that a small annual fee ($20/yr or $35/2yrs) is involved in being a member here.

All images sent to the website will be reviewed to assure some measure of overall quality control. Crafthaus is not a "free-for-all".
