Non-Fired Ceramic Techniques
These products are quick and fun to use, often done on figurines (wildlife, scenic vases, angels, dragons, holiday items like snowmen, Santas scarecrows, etc.). Learning various ways to make these things look the most realistic or appropriate for the project (wet brushing, oil sticks, translucents, shading, washes, corner loading, etc.). These items are not food or dishwasher safe but can be wiped down as needed.
Fired Ceramic Techniques using Colors For Earth Fired Products
Beautiful techniques can be done on figurines and flat surfaces as well following designs or creating your own. You can even use the One Stroke flower technique with CFE fired products. This technique is usually more glossy and is the choice for food safe items (platters, plates, mugs etc) or other useful items like trivets, jewelry boxes, vases and decorator items that you need water tight or want a glossier finish.
One stroke Techniques (Donna Dewberry) using Folk Art Acrylics & Enamels, are often brushstroke flowers, butterflies, or other cute or beautiful designs placed on smooth items like canvas, wooden or ceramic boxes, birdhouse, frames, vases, glass, candles, metal mail boxes, yard & wall signs, etc. There are also other paints that can apply this technique to fabric and paper as well.
General Paint Suggestions: I recommend Colors For Earth Products for all your fired color needs and Doc Holliday Mayco, Folk Art, Kimple Intense Translucents & Shivah PaintStiks for your Non Fired products such as acrylics, antiques, translucent stains, oil paints, specialty products, etc..
General Brush Suggestions: : I recommend Dove Black Gold, Royal Majestic and Aqualon and Silver Falcon for Non Fired Products and Kala brushes for fired Products
