Hi all!

 

Does anyone know how this cross is made? What kind of technique is used? I mean raw form and the glazing/painting part?

 

As far as i know it is supposed to be made of ceramics. Hope the image can be seen properly.

 

Thanks in advance

Almost looks more like enamel than ceramic. Does it have a metal backing?

i dont think so, i got the information that it is ceramic. But looks very special.

The side looks dark though.

I think it is a pressed image with cuer de seco

which is a resist line with a dark oxide to keep the colors separated.

agree with Marcia.  if you are not familiar with this technique and do live in the USA, you may have seen plastic cookie cutters that have a design built into the interior of the outside shape.  think santa claus with his suit belt, buckle, boots, bag.  when used in cookie dough, the outer shape is cut and the interior lines are formed by pressing into the dough but not cut through.

 

this looks like it was made that way.  then colors added as appropriate.

Hi All!

 

thanks for your useful replies. We found some videos and checked the malibutile site. It is really helpful.

Unfortunately we didnt find anything about the needed materials to be able to try this.

Do you know where we could purchase this kind of material?

Atoofsa sells a black wax resist for this purpose. There may be other sources.
