Painted glaze on pots

Yep, I've been painting more flowers and leaves on pottery.

Geraniums to be exact.

Glaze is painted upon bisque-ware.
The colored glazes are covered by a coat of matte clear glaze. This will also be waxed before the whole pot is dipped into a satin white glaze.

The finished pots...I like the watercolor look with the designer liner lines, and the Mayco Stroke N Coat glazes for colors...brighter where there are 3 coats.

The little saucers go with cups which I've shown before, to sit under them, or beside them. Or actually on top to keep your beverage hot some of the time!

These will be available at the Depot arts and crafts store, located in the Old Depot in downtown Black Mountain.  I'm so glad to have them shown there where they may be purchased more hours than when I bought them to the tailgate market.


  1. Thank you for sharing your process! Do you have to apply two different glazes because the satin white isn't transparent?

    1. Yes, I paint on the flower area with matte clear, then wax that area, then can dip the whole thing in Satin white. Of course I wax the bottom too!

  2. So pretty............. Mmmmmm.... Yesssss.......

  3. Please.... I would like to take the "Keep On Blogging!" "button" on your sidebar. I LOVE it!!!!! It is so true.

    If we have the guts to do it.

    Thank you.


Looking forward to hearing from you! Since I didn't know the 1000+ people who supposedly looked at my blog the other day, I'm back to moderating comments. If that doesn't help, I don't know why blogger doesn't have a filter that stops this hacking...
