How Chinese porcelain is painted:
Typically the body is first fired in a kiln to convert it into a hard porous biscuit or bisque.

Underglaze decoration may then be applied, followed by glaze, which is fired so it bonds to the body.

The glazed porcelain may then be painted with overglaze decoration and fired again to bond the paint with the glaze.
