Royal Delft

Our first stop was the Royal Delft Factory & Museum where one can tour the iconic Delft Blue ceramic and porcelain earthenware, tiles and pottery. What makes it exciting? The initial coat of paint is black, which we learnt is cobalt exide, but when you put the second coat (also called 'firing') the chemical reaction triggers the appearance of the beautiful Delft blue!
