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!

Every week it is hard for me to decide what piece to put on the blog, I have so many to choose from.  This week I hope to attract all of the elephant lovers, I probably have 8-10 different elephants.  I have heard that elephants have a good memory.  I know my granddaughter, India rode an elephant at the circus when she was about five years old and that was all she talked about for a very long time.  So this piece is for her.

    1. Basecoat entire piece with dark grey. Antique with black antiquing doing a small area at a time and wiping back with a soft cloth.


    2. Drybrush elephants with dark grey, light grey, cream, and highlight with white.


    3. Paint eyes white, iris real brown, and pupils black.  Place a white highlight in each eye.


    4. Blush cheeks and inside of ears with rose and petal pink mixed in your brush, if you want the color lighter add a little white.


    5. Paint toenails and tusk cream.


    6. Paint tongue true red.


    7. Paint base black. 


    8. Dry brush rock areas with fog, light grey and highlight lightly with white.


    9. Dry brush grass areas with shadow green, grass green and lightly with citrus green.


    10. Spray with matt sealer.  When dry paint hi-gloss sealer on eyes and tongue.




 

Greenware is $9.35 and bisk is $13.60—as always class fee $15.00 plus tax.
