I recently tried one of those paint your own pottery things for the first time at The Pottery Stop. I wasn't sure how my piece would turn out since 1) it took me a hundred years to do, 2) I was trying a wax resist technique that seemed iffy, and 3) I made up the design as I went along. I also experimented with putting a ton of different paints in some of the areas which gave it a cool marble effect (but could equally have come out as a disaster for all I know).
But I totally love how this switchplate cover came out! The leaves look pretty cool. I would totally go again--and next time I want to make:
- a larger switchplate
- a round trinket box (maybe with a monarch butterfly on it?)
- a large rectangular vase
