The Pottery Place
I can’t believe I forgot to blog about this! Ok- this is kinda kitsch-y and silly- but fun none the less. A couple months ago one of the lady’s groups here on base went to the neighboring town to a pottery painting place. It was fun. I have painted pottery before, in college, but you know- the glaze never looks like how it will turn out after its fired. I was very skeptical.
I picked a sushi plate. Sure, I don’t make sushi in my house- but it seemed like a good flat tray. The lady’s in our group decided that it would be the prefect size for a whole pile of chocolate covered strawberries. …yummmmm…
I drew out the design and painted it. I put on three coats of glaze and I wasn’t sure if I had stayed in all the pencil lines. Didn’t know if it was going to look streaky or sloppy- Got me. That glaze is tricky stuff.
And of course, my daughter its just itchin’ to go to pottery place. I am hoping to do it, with enough time to make Christmas ornaments… but who knows. ~jen~
