In pondering this dilemma I knew the King of the Trolls, the Gooblin King's rival, was rich looking in his purple and gold when the old saying of
"Make new friends but keep the old, One is Silver and the other is Gold" popped into my head. Now the relationship between these two kings will be an interesting tale to develop but there is still an underlying element of friendship between them I feel. The other saying is keep your friends close and your enemies even closer which might even have some merit. *smiling more*
So silver is what will suit the Gooblin King. And like how easily silver can be melted and fused into other things, so are my china colors. For they are like silver in that they melt and fuse onto the porcelain. Porcelain is glass and can't absorb paint... it can only fused or be sealed (for example) like in a glaze.
It is no secret that I am a bibliomania when it comes to reading. Bibliomania is an extreme passion for books. Which is funny since my favorite genre is historical romances (passion - romance--get it? *lol) So what does that have to do with my question of does art create romance or does romance create art?
Example: Hiraeth - a bittersweet sense of missing something or someone you love, while still being grateful for their existence. A longing for home or that time that felt like home.

If you are wondering where this is going, well the Gooblin King received his name, Hir'aeth. It is a Welsh word with no direct English translation, but the definition also has something to do with the Gooblin's King's personality.
