Hi guys! Seeking some help on a project I’ve been working on for a while. To not get too in depth, I’ve been replicating this antique teapot, and need some advice on getting the finish/color right. I’ve struggled and struggled trying to find the right glaze to match, and then I had an epiphany that the orange is NOT a glaze but rather some sort of paint. There’s a definite texture change between the clear glazed areas and the orange. Also, the orange is kind of a satin finish. Does anyone have a clue what type of paint this would be, or what would replicate it? It sort of reminds me of the finish of vintage Pyrex bowls. This line was produced in the 1940s. I’m guessing they glazed all of the pieces clear, and then painted on some sort of coating afterwards to maybe save money. Anyway, any help would be hugely appreciated! Thanks! Jared
Attached is a pot I bought in an antique shop years ago. The dealer thought it was from central America. Anyone have any ideas? Alabama's gallery has a pit fired pot with similar characteristics. It is a pit fired bowl with 3 legs and a roughly etched design. I bought it because I liked the primitive quality of the piece.
