Unlike regular ceramic glazes, with china paint what you see is what you get. China paints are consistent, durable and can produce any effect you can get from paint or ink. So if you’re frustrated with the chalky look of underglazes and the unpredictability of regular ceramic glaze, china painting might be just you’ve been looking for.

But of course, before you can get great results, you need to become familiar with the tools and master their effects. In this excerpt from New Directions in China Painting (which is now shipping!), Paul Lewing explains how to uses the brushes and wipeout tools used by china painters. Watch and learn! -Jennifer Harnetty, editor.
