Dalmation Puppy Children's Plate - Handpainted Porcelain

What fun I had in designing and intricately handpainting this dalmation puppy! It's so bright and cheerful, and made for the child in all of us!
I began making this on my wheel, making sure of high sides and a fat rounded lip. Then I added slightly raised eyes. When dry, I handpainted three coats of each color, using food safe underglazes and then bisque fired the work. Afterward, I added three coats of clear food safe glaze and fired it to 2243 degrees F, so the plate rings when pinged! It measures 7 2/3" across and 1 1/2" high and is microwave and dishwasher safe. When not in use, place it on the wall or shelf to brighen up your room. As wall art, it is a wonderful gift for the new grandchild!
