Porcelain Paint Palette (Turquoise Art Quote 2)


This porcelain paint palette with an inspiring art quote stamped around the edge was slip cast in a mould that I hand carved and made in my studio. I made this one extra thick and then I carved the basins deeper than the other slip-cast palettes. I finished by smoothing it and stamped the words: “Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time – Thomas Merton” around the edge. Next I stained the letters with three layers of turquoise underglaze and wiped it back, leaving the underglaze only in the letters to preserve the pristine white surface. After the piece slow dried, I bisque fired it to 1046 degrees Celsius and then glazed it with a studio clear glossy glaze and glaze fired it to 1220 degrees Celsius.

This palette can be used with any paint and can be cleaned with water, turpentine or other paint thinners. It has 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.

I also have customisable pre-order options and porcelain brush rest sets available.
