About a month ago I blogged about my experience in going to one of those paint your own ceramics places at a local mall. I am VERY pleased with the results - I cannot BELIEVE how vibrant they turned out. I am so very happy that the colors I picked matched my signature palette.
I had mentioned that it was very difficult for me to envision the final product because the colors are all so muted before it gets fired. The paints are also very thick and a little difficult to apply and sitting there for about 90 minutes working on this plate, I wasn't sure I'd ever do it again but after seeing the way it turned out? I will absolutely do it again!
This is the plate where I simply used one of the small squeeze bottles of black paint that used a syringe tip to apply the paint. This one only took me about 15 minutes to complete. It looks totally awesome! A friend of mine saw these plates and suggested I do designs like these on giant cookies... :o)
This was the black & white plate before firing.
