Ceramic painting tutorial - Using a digi stamp

Hello I love painting ceramics at the moment. I have decided to make a dinner set for my family using ceramic plates and the digital image Remembrance from the  Delicious Doodles shop. I love my ceramic pens and using them with digital stamps so here is a little tutorial for you all.

Plate Recipe

Blank Ceramic Plate
Ceramic Paints
Carbon Copy Paper
Digital Image
Biro pen.

Step One

You will need a clean blank ceramic plate

Step Two

Print out your desired Digital Image to the size you want it to be on the plate. Cut out a piece of Carbon Copy paper to match the digital image. Place it under the image making sure you have it the correct way to transfer the image.

Step Three

Take the biro pen and trace over the image where you  want you design. You will need to press quite hard and you may need to shape the image to the plate.

Step Four

Your image on your plate should look something like this.

Step Five

Take your black ceramic pen and draw over the carbon copy design. Your plate should now look like this.

Step Six

Take your green ceramic pen and colour all the parts you wish to be green.

Step Seven

Keep building your colours up here I have used two contrasting shades of red. Add some gold to the centres of the poppies for a finishing touch.

You have now finished your plate. It should look like the picture at the top of this page.

Rub out any lines left from the carbon copy with a rubber and follow the cooking instructions on the pens or paints used.

Thanks for stopping by today I really appreciate your time and comments. I hope you are inspired too. Hugs Pascale
