I'm a Little TEAPOT!


Pin It
I got this darling teapot at the thrift store...
It's cutesy...like dollhouse cute.
Like "let's have a tea party" daughter cute.
Like..."this doesn't belong at my house" cute...
But I love the shape...so what to do?
Paint it!

Begin by cleaning your glass or ceramics with rubbing alcohol.
I used FolkArt Enamel paint (this stuff is made for glass and ceramics)
It's sold at Walmart...variety of colors for under $2.

However...I didn't realize until after I was finished
 that if there are any flaws in the ceramics,
they will shine in all their glory after you paint...just a note for the future.

See it there...oh well.
I only needed to do 2 coats of paint.
This stuff was thick when painted on.
The instructions said wait 48 hours after painting and then
bake for 30 minutes in the 350* oven.
So a couple days later, I baked it.

I haven't put and liquids in it...or soaked it in any liquids...
But I should be able to!
...and I am happy with the results!






Linking up to THESE parties this week!
