Corrine Lazar always has loved antiques, especially painted dishware.
After visiting a painting class with a friend, she decided to try her hand at china porcelain painting. She enjoyed the activity so much that she stuck with it and has been a member of the China Porcelain Painting group for about 10 years.
At a recent group meeting, the Village Mira Mesa resident took a palette knife to stir some mineral oil into pink powder until it met the consistency she was looking for. Once she got it just right, Lazar began painting roses on a plate with a thin-tipped brush.
“Roses tend to be my preference when I am painting,” Lazar said. “There is just something about them that I like, and they look really nice on dishware.”
