How to Paint a Thrift Store Ceramic Figurine for Easter
I shared the tutorial for making this painted Easter bunny on a recent Facebook Live which you can catch here.
Start by painting the base in black to cover the entire surface. Leave the paint to dry fully and once dry, paint over the surface in white chalky paint.
While still wet, dab the excess white paint wih tissue paper revealing the black base underneath.
And lastly, using a fine tip paint brush, repaint some of the finer details such as the eyes, nose and ruffled edges in any clor of your choosing. We added a gold trim to the bunny dress just for some added interest.
And voila, the cermic bunny makeover is complete! This neutral color scheme matches my easter decor much better then the previous bunny.
