Our Hand-Painting Design Process

 

Step 1: Our design team votes on a new design.

 

Step 2: We practice on a paper plate.

 

Step 3: We try to make improvements and ensure that the design is a real winner.

 

Step 4: We’ll start to paint on the real plate.

 

Step 5: We insure that there are three coats and sand everything down to ensure that everything is smooth and even.

 

Step 6: We take the plates out to get them glazed & fired.
