The definition of painting on porcelain means the surface where the image sits on is porcelain and the paints are also ceramic based. They all have to be fired. The finished product is resistant to most kinds of solvents and scratching. Damages to the piece would come from dropping or scratching it with a very hard material. It is a very time enduring medium and lasts for hundreds of years without much change.
