Our favorite month is "Movember," and we decided to add a mustache onto this round box. Add-ons may be placed on your item during the firing process to be permanently fused to your piece. We have lots of add-ons to choose from, and we've seen people get really creative with them.
Paint 3 coats of Purple (28) to the top and bottom of the box
Paint 3 coats of Black to the mustache and the inside of the box
Add black stripes to the lid of the box. Imagine the box top is a clock and paint your first two stripes at 12 and 6 o’clock. Then, place additional marks in between. Continue until you are happy with the number of stripes.
Using a toothpick, remove stickers.

The effect of going from light to dark colors is called "ombre." It looks great and is super easy! You can apply the ombre effect to many pieces of pottery, and you can use all kinds of colors (we have so many different shades of pink in our studios, it's not even funny)! My favorite alternate title for this video blog is: Four Shades of Purple!
