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!

It's said that birds of a feather flock together. This week's featured piece is a picture frame covered with feathers. What's really great is that you can follow my suggested colors or you can paint to match any room's decor. Making this one for a baby picture? Consider pastels, or pink or blue with brown highlights in each feather. Want to get bold? Let's move to brilliant reds, blues and purples.

Regardless of what color you use for the finishing touches, this frame will add personalized flair to any photo.





Feather Picture Frame

  1. Basecoat frame black.


  2. Sketch off feathers with a pencil, this will be covered with paint.


  3. Green feather base coat shadow green.  Using an angle brush going in the shape of the leave use leaf green and Indian corn to give the leave shape.  Use a liner brush to put veins in the leaf.


  4. Brown leaf base coat real brown.  Using an angle brush going in the shape of the leave use firewood and honeyed bronze to give the leave shape.  Use a liner brush to put veins in the leaf.


  5. Orange leaf base coat terra cotta.  Using an angle brush going in the shape of the leave use true orange, pumpkin and voltaic orange to give the leave shape.  Use a liner brush to put veins in the leaf.


  6. Blue leaf base coat navy blue.  Using an angle brush going in the shape of the leave use bright blue and caribbean blue to give the leave shape.  Use a liner brush to put veins in the leaf.
