And will try to get some information into this forum soon. In the meantime, if there are other china painters out there, please let me know. We need to compare notes. http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif

I painted my sinks in my house with my china paints and also did tiles for my laundry room. Will have to take a picture and put it up.

Once paints are fired, they become part of the object you have painted them on. The only way that they can be removed is by using an acid. Even when acids are used, sometimes this does not remove all of the paint stain.

I don't have any experience with the paints that are not fired. I have seen them in the store and the examples they have look good. I have also seen some paints that can be "cooked" in home ovens, but have not tried these either.

Show us some of your work. I would love to see it. Let's talk more.

Hi again:

I do have a comment about the tile painting using the non-fire paints. If I am mistaken someone please correct me. I looked into this for my students and found that while it is true that you can paint the tiles existing on the walls or counters, it is not recommended for painting and then attaching the tiles (i.e. grouting) I painted tiles and cups using my paints, firing and so forth. The I proceeded to take sand paper to the tiles. I wanted to see how it would hold up. The cup I painted over a year ago, painting inside and out(LEAD FREE PAINT!!!!!!!!) The tiles held fine and the painting is still on the cup. Not sure if this helps, but thought I would drop it in anyway.
