Happy Easter!

Happy Easter, everyone!

Although in Japan most of us don’t celebrate it because most of us are Buddhists, the Easter season is the Cherry Blossoms season for us.

I bought this cute blank plate from Peter Faust. Since it’s gotten a rabbit on the plate, I thought painting Easter was a great idea. Then, I designed my style of Easter plate. I painted cherry blossoms with luster. When I ordered this plate to Peter, he said that I should NOT use luster on the plate. However, I totally forgot what he advised me and DID it…….

When I looked at what happened to my plate, I was a little bit shocked because it got a lot of tiny white spots. But, I kept painting on it, and as a result, I think the white spots added some interests to my design.

In Osaka we have several nice spots where we can enjoy viewing cherry blossoms. I designed my plate from this type of cherry blossoms called Yae-Zakura in Japanese.

  1. The plate is so pretty. Thanks for posting it and your Easter wish.

  2. Yumiko-san, that’s a great combination! I also like using lusters too. By the way, pink and purple lusters by the Japanese manaufacters have to be used up within 6 months after opening the bottles.So, be careful! But overseas brands don’t have does limitation. So, I use them(like Herus Mother of Pearl)instead, although they cost double the price of that of Japanaese brands.

    • Hello Yukari-san!
