Comparison of ceramic hand-painted and underglaze craftsmanship

Ceramic hand-painting and underglaze coloring are two common ceramic crafts. Hand-painted, as the name suggests, the degree of human participation is relatively high, and the quality of character and speed are directly related to the craftsmanship of the workers. The underglaze color is the automatic operation of the machine. The worker only needs to put the ceramic blanks in the corresponding position, and the machine can complete the underglaze color printing operation. The pattern of the underglaze color will be very uniform and regular, because it is a machine operation.

Difference
