Paint your own pottery

In my case, it's a Hylian Crest and
some hearts.
Painting your own pottery is one of those things you don't realize is incredibly fun until you do it. There are a lot of ceramic options these days, from sculptures of dragons to Boo! statues to gnomes for your garden, but my favorite is still the basic blank plate.

A blank plate is like a blank page--it's endless possibility. It's a little of everything until you decide what you want to do with it.

It's a blank canvas. And as anyone can tell you, a blank canvas is only boring if the person using it is boring.

Turns out much brighter after baking.
The tools don't make it easy, but going with a friend made it fun. Great way to keep the hands busy while we caught up. Definitely something I'd do again. Also, I have a new large mug that's the right size for tea. (Too small tea mugs are always a problem.)

Have you ever painted your own pottery? What did you make?
