I returned to painting ceramics today at this amazing shop in Tampa Bay: General Mold Inc. They had 1000s (no joke) of objects to choose from but I found this one for my owl loving friend:

The piece had already been fired so it just had to be glazed then I tried translucent paints for the first time, which do not require to be fired and are a pretty fun medium to work with:

To hang, I used four different yarns and embellished a bit further with a couple of vintage owl beads.

Sorry the pictures are not the best.
I'd love any feedback, thanks for looking!

we have a pottery place in town as well and i painted this mask a few months ago, but the way i did mine was sort of like a tribal mask. i never thought to think outside the box and make it into an owl or something other than a tribal mask. this is so neat!! great job!! Cheesy

Pretty! I love the colors and the overall look of the translucent paints.

Where in Tampa is this store? Is it downtown?

I had owl on the brain so that probably didn't hurt. Smiley

It is actually in St. Petersburg, if you google "General Mold Inc - Petersburg", the info will come up. They have an amazing collection of molds (so its not just a clever name) and very reasonable rates to paint there.

Thanks you two!
