1  Painting Pottery: Lace Stenciling in Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects by the-crafty-penguin on: October 01, 2010 10:44:16 AM


This is one of my favorite techniques for painting pottery!

Lace-stenciling:

Prep: Tape off any areas that you do not want to paint with painters tape.

Step 1. Paint 2 thin coats of a light color of paint (I used white), allowing the first coat to get tacky before painting the second.

Step 2. Paint a thick coat of white paint, then press the lace into the paint right away. The lace will be held in place by the paint.

Step 3. Paint 3 thin coats of blue paint over lace with a sponge, allowing paint to get tacky between coats. Be careful not to lift the lace while painting, or else the paint will seep under the lace.

Step 4. Peel off the lace and painters tape.

Tips: The smaller the holes in the lace, the more difficult it is to use this technique. I like to pick lace that has a geometric pattern and larger openings.

3  3D Origami Swan in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by the-crafty-penguin on: September 30, 2010 11:48:55 AM


These swans are are a lot easier to make then it looks - there is one basic step that is repeated, then used to build the swan. This guy was made with wrapping paper, but any thin paper can be used.
