These pieces often portray scenes from Portuguese history or its fabulous sights. Azulejo is a clay or ceramic plate piece, generally with a square shape decorated with colorful designs, and most hand-painted tiles show Moorish designs. The process is very meticulous. The drawing is made on parchment paper that is drawn with a graffiti pen and stamped with a coal pencil in the tile. The paintwork is done with water-based paint, a powder that is mixed with water to work the density. The painting process requires knowledge: not too watery and not too strong. The outline is made from the contour brush, and then the background is painted with a swath brush to highlight the piece. The hand-painted tile goes to the oven and the rest of the coal disappears. The process is complete.
