Ceramic Painting


Today I'm playing with ceramic paint for the first time! It's so much fun, but I'm not all that good at it yet. I think the pens would be easier, but I got this kit with my 50% off Michael's coupon so it was much cheaper than buying a bunch of different pens. I got the mugs at the Dollar Tree.

My plan is to practice up and then make myself a whole set using miss matched white pieces from the thrift store. Wouldn't that be delightfully odd? Miss matched dishes all painted with the same theme? I like it! I just need to get better at it. I think my brushes may be too stiff because they are leaving lines in the paint.

By the way, you are welcome to look at the mess in the background. :) Claire put that there for me. My sweet chubby little babe, she loves playing by the tree. I am so grateful for little baby messes around the house again! In the last two months she has gotten so mobile that she has been keeping us in messes to enjoy. :)  xo, Sam

What a cute idea - I think they look great. If I painted cups, they would be striped - that's about where my creativity ends :-) I like your attitude on Claire's messes. Our little one is in the same stage - perhaps I need to learn to enjoy it more. On a happier note, I made a Miss Violet top for Elizabeth's Christmas jammies and it's so cute! It's a great pattern.
