Paint your own pottery, Part 2

Brie and I went back to The Pottery Stop on Friday and finished up our new pieces (a rectangular vase in my case). Also,  we picked up the pieces that had been fired the week before and they came out AWESOME. I friggin love mine, it turned out pretty much exactly how I pictured it.

First I painted the jewelry box all black for a base coat. Then I used a diagram of a butterfly I googled to figure out what the wings should look like, and painted the outline on  with wax resist. I added some leaves to the top and while waiting for it to dry, painted a ribbon of flowers and leaves on the bottom piece using the wax resist. After that it was just a matter of coloring it in with paints.
Such a cool and unique piece, I'm so pleased with how it turned out!  It really has the stained glass feel I was going for. Yay!
Can't wait to pick up my vase next weekend and see how that turned out too :)
