Painted Pottery

I’ve been wanting to share this project with you for a while, but it was part of Brian’s anniversary gift so I had to keep it a secret.

About a month ago I went to a pottery painting shop with my neighbor — SO much fun. If you get the opportunity to do this you definitely should.

Pottery painting is pretty easy, as long as you have enough time to do so. Our trip took about four hours, maybe more. First you have to pick out  the piece you’d like to paint. I went with a basic white tray.

I had a hard time deciding what to paint, until I saw a Redskins tray. With that as my inspiration, I asked the woman at the pottery shop to print me out a piece of carbon paper with the Ravens logo. I centered it on my tray.

Once it was taped on my tray, I traced all of the lines in the logo so they would show up on the plate. ALL of the lines. This seemed to take forever.

Then, I painstakingly painted my Raven and my “Go Ravens” text. You have to go over your painting several times so this took a while. I almost regretted choosing such a detailed drawing, but in the end it was worth it.

The paint looks pretty thick and crusty (ew) before they glaze and fire it. But overall, not too bad!

So proud 🙂

AND, it looks ever better once it is finished. Check this out 😀

Brian was pretty impressed at his sweet tray.

 

Moral of this story… GO PAINT POTTERY!
