Colorific Porcelain® bought Willoughby’s China Paints & Supplies in 2014 from Larry Shuler, of California.  Susan Heib was their manager for many years.
   Larry, with his wife, Dovia Shuler, bought Willoughby’s from Gladys Burbank, past owner of the china painting magazine, China Decorator.
   Dovia produced many of the original formulas that we use today.  Her main love was working with glass. Because of her love of glass painting, she produced one of the largest glass paint lines available today.
We have 4 beautiful china painting studies for sale by Dovia, that we are proud to be able to continue selling to the public.

Gloss China Paints are over glaze decorations that are applied layer by layer on glazed ware, most often porcelain.
They are translucent, meaning that some of the underneath color will show through. Building up layers of color adds density
as well as deepens the color. Firings are made after each application. China paints melt into the glaze, bonding with it.
China painting colors are made from metallic and mineral oxides.

China Paints have been recognized by our government as a Fine Art.
China Paints by Willoughby’s has been recognized by the industry as one of the most complete lines available.

The following color tiles shown are not an exact reproduction due to several conditions.
Firing temperature, electronic reproduction, and the painter.
