How to Paint Pottery & Ceramics: Ombre Effect -- Mom's Coffee Mug
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!
Paint Pod Colors: Light Purple (24), Purple (25), Purple (27), and Dark Purple (29)
Natural Sponge x 4
Ombre! – First, dab one coat of light purple paint onto the lower part of the mug with a natural sponge. Second, dab one coat of darker purple paint above the light purple on the mug and make sure the shades of purple overlap. Now, go back to the light purple and repeat. Continue to alternate with all four shades of purple up the mug.
