BORDERS (6) Plates Painting.

ca: SANEFES (6) Plats pintar.

Borders of plates: the six photos show a few of the many possibilities there are for using borders. They can be with banding lines of different widths and colors and with designs that are repeated or separate. There are so many, the same one can also be in different sizes depending on the size of the plates you decorate and as they are all on transparent paper and pounced, this makes recognizing them difficult. You must file each one with a colored photo and the best way to do this is explained in “filing borders”. These plates are decorated using the Majolica method and in the section “plates” the whole method of working is explained.
