Paint Me Happy!
Hello my name is Diane Hunt and I will tackle almost any craft project dealing with ceramics or any other craft media! I offer classes each month (Saturday’s only) at a cost of $15.00 plus taxes for almost anything in the shop. So put on your oldest shirt (the paint will not wash out) and come join me in a wonderful stress reliever. Call me at 870-777-3862 or text at 870-331-4255 for class information, or purchase bisk or greenware. I have learned some important lessons by trial and error. But the one thing to remember is there are no mistakes in painting ceramics, if you don’t like how it looks, just start over. I have taught classes to some wonderful students from the ages of 2 to 63 years young, and am looking forward to teaching more as the years go by. Everyone has some type of talent hidden deep down inside of them. All they need is a little direction to find their talent. With the right equipment, molds, brushes, paint etc. anyone can make a piece they can be proud of! Just think of someone special in your life, if you made a special piece and gave to them, think of the joy it would bring them. They will treasure it for the rest of their lives!

I saw a photo of this deer rock and fell in love with it!  This was a fun piece to paint.  The possibilities are endless on the final look of the piece.  The rock or sky colors could be changed to match something in your house.  This would make a special gift for some of those deer hunting friends.

 

Deer Rock

Kinzie KR6

 



  1. Paint sky area behind deer head with daffodil, with daffodil mixed with white drybrush over the yellow area; make it lighter as you go toward the top of the sky.  Cover more than what you want with the yellow (this area will be used for blending).


  2. The pink area of the sky drybrush with dusty rose mixed with white to a soft pink color.  Cover more than what you want with the pink (this area will be used for blending).


  3. Paint the blue part of the sky with navy blue mixed with white for a lighter blue.  Feather the blue down into the pink to make clouds.  Use a clean brush and white paint and make clouds.


  4. Base coat the rest of the piece black.


  5. Dry brush the top section of the mountains, rocks behind pine trees, side and back of the piece with fog. Drybrush with light grey and highlight with white. 


  6. Drybrush middle and bottom section of the mountain, deer and trees with real brown.


  7. Dry brush middle section of mountains with fog.


  8. Dry brush bottom section of mountain with rust.


  9. Dry brush foreground rocks with dark grey and very lightly with shadow green and highlight with white.


  10. Dry brush pine trees with shadow green and highlight with leaf green.  Paint tree trunks with real brown.


  11. Dry brush the deer with medium brown.  With a clean brush dry brush white around eyes, belly, tail, chest, ears, and legs (refer to photo).  Paint nose and eyes black with a white pupil.


  12. Spray with sealer.
