The other day I mentioned that I chipped one of the Bisque fired poppies as I was getting them out of the kiln, well rather than waste it I thought I would have a play with it.
After sanding off the chipped bit, I painted with Jo Sonja's Acrylic Paint - which we actually have on phenomenon special at the moment at £2.99 for 75 ml tubes - but that's not why I chose that colour believe it or not, I use Jo Sonja's or Paper Artsy as my paint of choice, as in this instance the Fresco would have been a bit chalky and I didn't have a red.
Once dry I gave it a coat of Sparkle & Spray Sealer, and then added Glossy Accents in the middle and around the edges and dipped it in Black Glitter. It was a serendipitous accident in the end, and I was so pleased that the ceramic took acrylic so well. I think I might just produce some plain ones that are smaller for altered art projects.
