Ceramic Painting

For Mothers Day, my Mum wanted to have a go at Ceramic Painting. I found a place near her in Kent called Kippy's, made a booking and on Saturday morning, off we went. I took some drawings as I didn't want to be stuck for ideas and boy was I glad I did as the selection of Bisque Ware was amazing - so hard to choose what I wanted to paint! I could decide if I wanted a Jug, a Bowl or a vase - but then was also a Teapot and a Gingerbread House - oh the decisions!

I opted for a small plate, my Mum went with a Mug and the Boy choose a Canister. Then it was time to paint. The very kind Lady who owns the Cafe went through the method and also gave me some carbon paper so I could trace my drawing onto the plate. There were hot mugs of tea, pretty colours and paint brushes - complete heaven!

I didn't take a picture of the front of my plate but I did take a shot of the back! On the front I went with flowers and two birds in shades of pinks, blues and greys.

The Boy painted a spotty design in Pinks and Blues for our kitchen - it's going to look so lovely in there! He even had enough time to paint a Truck which to be honest was probably more up his street!

My beautiful Mum painted Sunflowers on her Mug. Complete with teeny tiny Sunflowers on the handle and a large Sunflower in the bottom of the Mug. We spent about three and a half hours at Kippy's and I don't think I have ever seen the three of us concentrate so much. I'm so glad Mum choose to do this as it was a lot of fun and I am so looking forward to picking up our items!
