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!

My version of this Earth Dragon by Doc Holliday is all a-glitter thanks to a layer of glitter added to the finished piece. As is always the case with dragons, there are a million options for color combinations. To achieve the blue hues I've created here requires a combination of blues, purple and yellow.



Earth Dragon

  1. Base coat dragon black.


  2. Dry brush dragon with midnight blue.  Dry brush wings with blue suede.


  3. Dry brush dragon with mystic purple adding a small amount of white to highlight.


  4. Dry brush the spikes of hair on the dragon with flaxen yellow.


  5. Dry brush rocks with dark grey and light grey.  Wet brush rocks with mystic purple.  Dry brush white when dry, allowing the purple to show through.


  6. Dry brush tree trunk with real brown and highlight with medium brown.


  7. Paint toe nails, spikes of hairand belly gold.  Paint eyes with flaxen yellow, paint iris black with a white highlight.  Paint teeth white.
