Painting on Ceramic Tile

Last July when Kelir (Indonesian Circle Illustrators) was having a Children's Illustrations Exhibition in Ganara Art Gallery, some friends and I had an opportunity to try "Painting on Ceramic" by Idyllic

It was totally new thing from all I'd learned. The ceramic tile can't "hold" the paint (like paper) for the tile has no pores at all. It was a glazed tile. So it seemed that the paint just slipped away. The colour will look stronger and darker after the firing, so we have to be careful in choosing the right colour. And if we paint a darker colour underneath a lighter one, after the firing the darker colour will revealed (except that was what we want).
Here what I paint before the firing process:
