Pot Painting

here is my simple pot painting..

i have used enamel and fabric paint , 3D liner , kundan stones , mirror pieces etc on 1st pot..

on 2nd pot , made use of  enamel paint , glitter powder , 3D liner etc..


first apply the paste of  Chalk powder, fevicol and gum liquid on the earthen pot and after it is dried,the surface was rubbed with emery sheet(sand paper)just to smoothen it..after that you can brush black enamal paint all over the pot and let it dry..over this you can brush any designs or shades or strokes with metallic fabric paint..let it dry again and finally give a coat of varnish..on the 2nd pot ,i repeated the same process but just after brushing enamal(dont let it dry),took some glittering powder on a paper, placed near the pot and gave a light blow by mouth while turning the pot in circular motion so that the powder chips will stick on the pot all around..then used 3D liners as well..hope this helps..
