Repair of paint and glaze defects
The reproduction of the missing motifs begins with mixing the paint in the appropriate shade with the varnish and applying it to the surface, to recreate the background color. and then the colors are mixed and the decorative pattern retouched. A layer of protective varnish is applied over the whole.
The purpose of painting damaged porcelain is to cover up traces of repairs, especially hiding clear lines of welds. Just applying a thick layer
paint is not enough – on the contrary, it will only emphasize the difference between the old enamel and the restoration. In order to hide the repair, you must "melt" the edge of the new patch with the correct brush movements, regardless of its size, with the surroundings. Do your best, that the stain of the new paint is as small as possible. If you need to paint over a larger area or recreate colored or mottled enamel, you will achieve better results with a paint sprayer. The effects can turn out to be amazing, as long as you master this painting technique.
Regardless of the paint application technique, always check the effects first on a piece of unnecessary ceramics and remember to perfectly match the color of the new paint to the background.
