Porcelain painter Xiang Qiaoyun painted on a ceramic plate with Fencai painting, a coloring technique developed in Yongzheng period (1722-1735) of Qing Dynasty, in Jingdezhen, east China's Jiangxi Province, Sept. 27, 2011. Fencai painting, known as soft pigment, was built upon the foundation of Wucai porcelain of Kangxi period (1661-1722) of Qing Dynasty and derived from enamel coloring. Opposite of Wucai's strong and bright tones, Fencai is well-known for its soft and soothing color, which is favorably used on images of flowers and butterflies. (Xinhua/Zhang Wu)
