Customizable Porcelain Paint Palette
This customizable porcelain paint palette will be the size and layout of the one in the images, but you can choose which quote or message you want me to stamp into it. Please let me know in your order notes what you’d like stamped (up to 16 words) and which colour underglaze you’d like the letters to be stained with (or if you’d like it entirely white). Please note, custom orders will take up to 10 weeks to arrive and are non-refundable. If you need the palette sooner, you’re welcome to reach out to me to see where I’m at in the making process and how long it’s likely to take at that point to receive it.
These are the underglaze colours you can choose between for the lettering: Black, dark grey, medium brown, cobalt blue, purple, turquoise, medium leaf green, pale cactus green, maroon, red, pink, orange, yellow, coral and a dark teal.
This palette will be hand built by pressing a porcelain slab into a mould that I hand carved and made in my studio. I will then perfect the form by smoothing it and I’ll stamp the quote or message you’ve chosen into it. Next, I’ll stain the letters with three layers of underglaze of your choice and I’ll wipe it back, leaving the underglaze only in the letters to preserve the pristine white surface. After the piece slow dries, I’ll bisque fire it to 1046 degrees Celsius and then glaze it with a clear, glossy glaze and glaze fire it to 1220 degrees Celsius.
This palette can be used with any paint and can be cleaned with water, turpentine or other paint thinners without damaging the glazed surface. It will have a hole so that it can be hung out of the way in the studio if you so choose or left looking pretty on a table. This is a unique and extremely useful gift for yourself or an art-loving friend.
