Gold painting
With this particular technique of painting, gold assumes a role that goes beyond the simple finishing: it is used as base for the colour. Layers of mat gold cover some pre-arranged zones of the porcelain object. The decoration on such areas consists in creating shades and shadings with colours. The special brightness of the gold together with the shades realized on it, they will give origin to a refined and precious game of light and depth.
