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!

You may have an idea in your head of exactly what a dragon would look like or you may need to take a look at some of the mythical creatures in order to get some ideas. Either way, dragons are a very popular item for painters, young and old alike. It seems the possibilities are as endless as the imaginations of the painters so prepare to put your imagination in high gear if you choose to paint a dragon.

This particular dragon is staring at a reflecting ball and maybe he's thinking about the next knight who might come calling, or maybe he's considering how to get a little closer to that new girl dragon in the neighborhood without getting his wings singed!

In case you want to make one look just like mine, here are the instructions!
