China painted dolls "Salamander" line

This page shows our new luxury line "Salamander". All the dolls in this line are entirely painted with china paints (third fire porcelain pigments), technique that elevate our dolls to a new level. China paints are fused at a molecular level to the porcelain surface and it will never fade or peel, nor be affected by moisture or light, or can be scratched. It is completely impervious to elements. We still will continue working also with the acrylic and lacquer finishing in a separated line, the same way we used to do it, so everyone who wish one of our dolls could have one. 

All the pieces are painted with third fire pigments or china paints, that are special vitrifiable paints that are permanently bonded to the porcelain surface. China paints are translucent colors, that need to be applied in several thin layers to acchieve all the vibrance and deep of the colors, being fired between each layer at 750 C degrees. Some pieces, as the face, has more than ten china firings. The process gets significantly longer, because between the time to takes to the kiln to raise temperature and to expect the kiln to cool down is necessary to wait at least a complete day.
