Porcelain paintings

Belinha, as porcelain painter, uses various metallic, mat, iridescent and vibrant colour pigments mixed with a series of mediums, lustres and glass fibers to obtain multi-texture forms and aspects on the porcelain. She uses also 24k gold or platin to enhance her paintings. In some creations, she inserts crystals, semi pecious stones and water pearls to stress their beauty. 

Her designs come from her own imagination and they are inspired simply by the life. Therefore, all her creations are unique not resembling to one another.

For porcelain painting, she applies the following procedure:

After drawing a design on the porcelain, she fires the porcelain in a special oven before commencing its painting. Following the painting procedure, the porcelain must be fired from 720ºC to 1.200ªC depending on what result she wants to obtain. A creation can be fired normally between 2 to 8 times or even more.

Porcelain is very durable and can be passed on from generation to generation. Belinha is proud to know that her paintings will resist for years and years on!
