How to Paint Pottery & Ceramics: Trick or Treat Halloween Bowl
We used simple decorations to make this trick or treat Halloween Bowl awesome! You can apply these simple polka dots, outlines, and stripes to many pieces of pottery to give them that little something extra it needs!
Bowl with Rim Bisque
Paint Pod Colors: Orange (9) and Black
Fun Writer Colors: Black
Sponge with Handle (Spouncer)
Large, Flat Brushes
Small, Flat Brush
Paint the inside of the bowl and outside rim orange (9) with three coats of paint
Paint the bottom of the bowl black with three coats of paint
Add polka dots – using a sponge with handle, get a good amount of paint on the sponge, being sure to cover the entire bottom of the sponge, push the sponge down onto the inside of the bowl, move the handle around while pushing down, and lift up
With a black fun writer, draw a circle around the polka dots. Stop just short of completing the circle and add a few dots.
Using a small, flat brush, paint stripes at 12 and 6 o’clock. Then, apply stripes in the middle of the two previous stripes, and continue until you are happy with the number of stripes.
Remove the stickers
Using a black fun writer, fill in the letters
