That plain white spoon rest i what i chose.
Its a cute little studio right there in U-Village. The concept of the studio is pretty simple and so fun. You first select the ceramic you want to paint. There are so many options like vases, bowls, mugs, animal figurines, plates, photo frames, etc. All just plain wait waiting for your creative work.
Then you go pick out your colors. There are all kinds of colors, different brushes, and lots of stencil & stamps are also available. There is also a nice template for each color showing how the color would be with one coat, two coats, and three coats. There are also associates available to help with your questions.
My friend chose a photo frame and a Seattle skyline stencilOnce you selected your ceramics, colors and tools. Then you go sit in one the tables and start painting. My friend chose a photo frame which she was going to give as a b'day present to her hubs. How sweet! I chose a spoon rest, its been a ordeal trying to find a place to put the ladles while cooking. Hopefully i will have a dedicated place for it after buying this. I chose another one as well, a plant tag for the tomato plant that we are gonna plant soon in our yard, just like we did last summer. So excited!
Final product. I did a plant tag as well.
As you can see, my friend did a much better job than i did. They even shared it on their facebook page :)
I wanted a watercolor effect so i was doing freehand painting, so glad it worked :) Love how the pink color i chose turned out after the glaze.
Cant wait for the summer to make use of this beauty.
This was a much needed item in the kitchen for a long time. Finally i made my own artistic one :)
I later found out from my colleague that there is a similar studio(not Paint The Town, this is a different one) in Renton also. If your city has one, then you should try it out! Let me know if you have already tried similar activities, what are your thoughts? I had fun, and i would love to go back again sometime.
Thanks for reading. xo, Hems.
