So today we have my latest art trial...
Firstly, I took me to the thrift shop, second hand store... what ever you call it in your corner of the world.... and gathered some plain white, gently loved, previously owned drink ware. Exhibit A just below.
Then we have my bargain of the month.... I looked the paints up on line to check them out... how to use them and read people comments on their success/failures...
I went to the craft store, assuming they'd NOT have them... but I figured I'd check. Not only DID they have them, the entire display was on clearance! Yeah!, so I paid about a third of what I thought they would cost... Needless to say I got quite a few yummy colors!!
Then I drew on the mug with one of my art pens... as a test.
I wasn't sure it would write on shiney china, but it DID! (sorry, no picture of that phase) I did my best to draw on a curvy surface and let the ink dry a little...
Got my paints out, and with my tiniest paint brush, I tried to out line what I'd done with the paint.
I normally draw with a 005 Micron pen, so trying to paint on the lines with a brush, however tiny was like writing with a phone pole to me... but I pressed on.
The test mug is drying now for 24 hours... awaiting it's 1/2 hour stint in a 300 degree oven.... When it emerges, assuming it doesn't shatter in there... it is supposed to be a perfectly usable mug (still)?
You will have to stay tuned... to see what happens next!
Got to decide what I want to paint on the next one????
