Porcelaine 150 can be applied to all heat-stable bases that are able to withstand a temperature of 150°C (300°F), such as porcelain, china, glazed earthenware, terracotta, metal, enamelled sheet steel, copper and glass. The choice of base enables numerous effects to be produced and experiments to be made with the transparency and intensity of the colours.

Many applications are possible with Porcelaine 150 : with brushes and also with sponge, stencil... The Porcelaine 150 outliners, in tube with nozzle, can be used for outlining work. The markers are recommended for lines and writing.

Colours can be fluidized with the Porcelaine 150 thinner. To produce a matt finish, add a few drops of matt medium to the colour before application. The gloss medium can be used to lighten colours without thinning them.

The colours are applied directly to a perfectly degreased base with alcohol or soapy water. After observing the required drying time (minimum 24 hours), place the decorated object in a cold oven. When the temperature of the oven has reached 150°C (300°F), bake for 35 minutes. Colours have then a real enamelled look and resist dishwashing.


The diversity of the shapes of Pébéo's Iris series, is particularly suitable for painting with Porcelaine 150 : dagger stripper for flowers and leaves, long or short liner for broad and natural lines, fan brush for backgrounds, round brush for stripes...
If you want the brush strokes to be less pronounced, choose squirrel brushes instead.

On which surface can Porcelaine 150 be applied ?

The colours are particularly recommanded on porcelain, china and glazed earthenware, but numerous effects can be produced with other supports that are able to withstand a temperature of 150°C (300°F) such as metal or glass...


How to prepare the surface to be painted ?

Simply clean thoroughly the surface with soapy water or alcohol.


Can I paint with Porcelaine 150 on porous objects, such as plaster or earthenware ?

Yes, it is possible to paint on slightly porous objects. After a light sanding, apply a coat of filler undercoat. Allow to dry for 24 hours, then apply the paint.


How can I correct an error?

Before baking, it is very simple. The colours can be removed with water or alcohol: use a damp cotton swab to correct a detail or soak your object in water for a few minutes to erase everything.


Why did the colours brown after baking ?

The baking time was too long or the oven temperature was too high: use a special thermometer available from Pébéo (available in the Porcelaine 150 range).


How can I obtain very transparent colours ?

Mix them with the gloss medium. Do not exceed 1/3 of medium for 2/3 of paint, however.


What is the matt medium for ?

To obtain a matt appearance ; simply mix it with the paint.


How can I dilute the paints, fluidize them ?

With the Porcelaine 150 thinner. Caution, do not use water which would reduce the resistance to washing.


Why did the paints form bubbles after baking ?

You probably did not allow the paint to dry long enough before baking. The surface may have been too porous.


The paints did not resist dishwashing very well. Why ?

There are several possible reasons: the surface was poorly degreased with alcohol, the paints were diluted with water or perhaps the instructions regarding the baking temperature or duration were not respected.


When using for the first time, how do I make the colour run down to the end of the felt tip marker ?

Shake vigorously, then count 30 to 60 seconds, pressing evenly on the tip.
