zendoodle on porcelain

So, I don't have a clue how to "really" paint on porcelain, but life has brought many heads and body parts into my hands. (now that's a weird sentence) This is true. I have recently acquired a "doll factory" that was abandoned about 5 years ago.
So, what to do with all these lovelies?
This first head a tried my hand at some oil painting. Once again, never touched oil paints in my life, but hey, that's what "YouTube" is for. (btw what CAN'T up learn on there?) I got a dabble of paint here and there and moved it around some. The next day I worked with the turpentine and dabbled a little more.
Now, it has been over a week since I have worked on her. I went in with a brown wash, and did some defining work on her lips and eyes. (no photo yet) I am wanting to go in with a brown micron pen and do outlining and defining of the flowers.

Next Gal:
Zendoodling. I have seen all over Pintrest about purchasing cheap white plate and cups and then using a Sharpie to personalize them...I thought, hmmmm I wonder. And since I can, I should give it a whirl. Once again the handy dandy micron pen, you just have to love those!
There are so many wonderful free sites on different doodles, and I so loved just playing!! This is what I have come up with so far. Thanks for taking the time to read and look!
