It’s that fun time of the month again for our monthly Craft De-Stash Challenge! I love it because it means that things that have been staring at me in my craft room get finished! This goes for these 2 green ceramic bird tea light holders that I found at Kmart some time ago. I really love them but the particular green that they were just didn’t fit in with our decor so much anymore. So today I’m sharing how to use Fusion Mineral Paint on Ceramics using these 2 little birdies!
How to use Fusion Mineral Paint on Ceramics
- Something ceramic
- Fusion Mineral Paint – Ultra Grip
- Fusion Mineral Paint – Picket Fence
- Paint Brush
- Miss Mustard Seed Paint – Antiquing Wax
- Soft Cloth
Step 1 – Using a paint brush apply the Ultra Grip. You will only need one coat. This allows the paint to adhere to the ceramic. It goes on milky but once it dries it will become transparent. Allow to dry completely.
Step 2– Using a fresh brush paint the birds with Picket Fence. Allow to dry.
Step 3 – Apply a second coat of Picket Fence and allow to dry.
Step 4 – Take your soft cloth and apply the antiquing wax. If you prefer to not go for the aged look just leave out this step.
And that’s it!! Four easy steps to transforming dated ceramics using Fusion Mineral Paint! If white’s not your colour and you would prefer something else be sure to check out all of the other fabulous colours it the Fusion Mineral Paint Range. The possibilities are endless!
