Do you remember we went pottery painting a couple of weeks ago? Well they're glazed and fired! I'm so pleased with how mine turned out. As you can see I've got a bit of a spots and stripes theme going on.
The plan is to keep it to blue and white to suit a new kitchen that I might have one day, but I can't help introducing a bit of red. I just love that combination!
I used little foam stamps to do the spots, while the fine lines were scratched through the paint with a scraper. The result looks quite quilt-like don't you think?
To go with the plate I did a little serving bowl. I sponged the inside, then added some spots, then scraped lines across some of the spots.
On the outside I did a combination of scraped and painted lines.
These are all painted on pre-thrown and biscuit fired blanks. I am itching to try to throw some pots of my own from scratch. I reckon when I grow up I want to be a potter!
