Tea set

My first painting on tea set, done for the Charity Bazaar. I'm very satisfied with the outcome eventhough the colors of the roses a little bit different from the original one before I put it in the oven.

The rose color before I put it in the oven .

The rose color become a little bit yellowish and became peach instead of white. You can see the difference between above picture n this picture. Overall I like it very much. Why must I heat it in the oven? The main reason is to make the painting permanent on the ceramic. And if you want to bake it, make sure you follow the paint manufacturer instruction. Some of the enamel acrylic paint can bake at range 150 degree n some paint at 180 degree. But for Enamel Acrylic Folkart, can bake at 180 degree, higher than Pebeo.

Do not afraid to bake your ceramic because the making of ceramic also involves baking in the oven.

Charity Bazaar

A Charity Bazaar was held at the Embassy of Malaysia hosted by The Malaysian Ministry of Foreign Affairs Ladies Association of Abu Dhabi. The proceeds will be donated to Gulf for Good (G4G) charity expedition - The Wilds of Borneo Challenge which will take place in July.

There were lots of activities that took place such as sale of Malaysian Cuisine , silent auction, raffle draw, traditional dance performance, art exhibition and arts n craft sale. I contributed some of my work for sale which can be seen in the photo above. The items are teapot, cup n sauce, rose signage, frames, metal vase, small metal pail, wooden bear signage, small box and key box.
