This was supposed to be a joint post with Laura over at Mein Koffer ist voll but we never really got organised when she was here. Anyhoo so now I’m just going to tell you that fun pots does late night party nights for grown ups. We went to the first one of the year and had so much fun that we want to go again soon. I collected the results this week and I love them. Need to post Laura hers. Just a wee bit nervous about that!
So here’s the work in progress:
First you have to draw or trace what you want onto paper.
Then you use a transfer carbon paper type thing to transfer it.
Then you can sponge a background (or be brave and sponge first and do everything free hand like this lady!)
Then you can do the painting…
Susan’s is a secret squirrel affair so I can’t show you want she did, it’s a present.
The pottery is then glazed and fired and you can collect it in a couple of days (or weeks if you’re disorganised like me).
Here’s my finished result… shall we let Laura’s be a surprise when she opens the package? (not that it’s posted yet…)
Looking forward to going again!
