Paint Me Happy!
Hello my name is Diane Hunt and I will tackle almost any craft project dealing with ceramics or any other craft media! I offer classes each month (Saturday’s only) at a cost of $15.00 plus taxes for almost anything in the shop. So put on your oldest shirt (the paint will not wash out) and come join me in a wonderful stress reliever. Call me at 870-777-3862 or text at 870-331-4255 for class information, or purchase bisk or greenware. I have learned some important lessons by trial and error. But the one thing to remember is there are no mistakes in painting ceramics, if you don’t like how it looks, just start over. I have taught classes to some wonderful students from the ages of 2 to 63 years young, and am looking forward to teaching more as the years go by. Everyone has some type of talent hidden deep down inside of them. All they need is a little direction to find their talent. With the right equipment, molds, brushes, paint etc. anyone can make a piece they can be proud of! Just think of someone special in your life, if you made a special piece and gave to them, think of the joy it would bring them. They will treasure it for the rest of their lives!

I found the mold for this little guy recently while looking through mold catalogs. He is so unusual, normally, I don’t purchase molds like him but I fell in love with him and several others.  Really he is so ugly he is cute!  I was worried that no one would like him, but lo and behold, he's attracted a lot of attention right off the bat. If you're thinking he'd make a good addition to your kitchen windowsill, he's just waiting for you to take him home.   Also he can be made into a planter by cutting the daisies off on top of his head and glazing the inside.  Here are the directions for painting him."  

 

Basecoat piece black.



  1. Dry brush wood areas with fog, light grey and highlight with white.  Using a clean brush dry brush teeth white.


  2. Dry brush all leaves shadow green (use a heavy coat of this color), follow with leaf green and highlight with willow green.


  3. Dry brush daisy with cranberry and paradise.  Tap mustard on the center of the daisys and highlight with flaxen yellow.


  4. Dry brush mushrooms with toast and highlight tops with mustard.


  5. Paint eyes white allowing paint to dry.  Paint iris with real brown or a color of your choice with a black pupil.


  6. Blush cheeks with dusty rose (Kimple).


  7. Spray with sealer.
