Cheryl: China paints are composed of color pigments mixed with a glaze medium, and a flux to lower the melting point of the colors below that of the glaze to which they are applied.

I buy my paints in tiny little vials from Rhyan China company but you can get them lots of other places. The are compounded fine, ground powders. You have to buy medium to grind the powder into before you can paint with the pigment. It is an entirely diffent animal than you are use to for sure. You mix the pigments with commerically prepared oil medium so that some pigments are fast drying and some are slow-drying, or thick or thin...depending on what you need. The drying time is called "open time". I always thought this was a funny thing to call it. http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif

Many china painters use salad oil, olive oil, mineral oil, lubricating oi all kinds of weird stuff. I stick with the commerical stuff because I am not that brave.

The smell that caught you was probably oil of clove. It is very popular and is the base for most commerical mediums. I like the smell. It means I am working. LOL

Now that you have asked...I might have to pull my stuff back out and do some things. I have been wanting to do it anyway. We'll see.

Interesting Llis! Sounds complicated but i'll bet it's lots of fun! Yep, i'll bet it was the clove oil. They had very little to no ventilation going on in that room. But they sure seemed to be enjoying themselves. I'd love to see something that you've done!

Hi Cheryl

I am a porcelain/china painter. There is a new product available that paints beautifully without the smell of the oil of clove. I use it in my shop because a lot of the ladies have problems with fumes and strong odors. If you would like more information about the products let me know. I am new here and really have not figured out what I am doing in posting. Cherri

Cherri, The first question that comes to mind is where do you purchase your materials?I know that your town is even smaller than mine and we have very limited resources here! Do you order online or do you go to Tampa?

Hi Cheryl:

You can purchase through me or I can give you the names of others that might be closer. I use Bell's china paints and Seeley's. I also have the name of a china painting teacher for you. She might know someone in your immediate area. I unfortunately left it in my shop so I will have to give it to you by email.. drop me a note. dreams2shair@yahoo.com and I will forward it to you.
Cherri.

Oh I finally posted a picture. Which some help it is in the message forum.."I china paint"..
