Genesis paints on porcelain.

This would be the place to ask questions or share information concerning all types of doll making, re-doing, etc.

Genesis paints on porcelain.

Post by Annette »

Does anyone know if you can paint porcelain with Genesis paints?
I have a porcelain doll I would like to repaint, but don’t have porcelain paints or a kiln. Do you think Genesis would work?

I would think that it wouldn't work since Genesis was originally for oil painters I believe to speed up the drying time -- thus the heating of the paint to set it. So if you did use it seems like you would have to heat set it. I may be wrong since I have not used Genesis in a long time.

I would use some other paint - I have a friend who repaired old dolls - bisque etc. and she used acrylic paints - watered down to the consistency she wanted. Another friend used Testor enamel. I used textile paints on an old paper mâché doll. And so my point is I think you can use a wide variety of paints - just make sure it is not permanent so it can be changed in the future. Ruth

Thanks Ruth. I was thinking that, since porcelain is put into a kiln at a very high heat for the paint to set, that Genesis would work because the heat set paint doesn’t have such a high heat to set it.
I’ll experiment. It’s not an expensive doll, so if it doesn’t work, it won’t be a big loss.
