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

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:
