How to Paint Ceramic
Time: 1 hour + dry time
Materials: ceramic bowl or mug, vitrea 160 paint, brush, tape, oven
Tape off the area you’d like to paint, or start free handing your design. If you use tape, be sure to remove it before the paint dries. If you don’t, there’s a chance the paint will peel up with the tape. The design can still scratch off at this phase so be careful; this also means you can make minor touchups at this time since the paint can be removed.
Let dry fully, instructions say to wait 24 hours (I baked mine after 3 hours since my paint wasn’t thickly applied). After you are satisfied with your design, remember this is a permanent process, place your dish in the oven for 40 minutes at 325°F. Don’t take out of the oven until completely cool otherwise you risk the chance of your dish breaking. It’s best to turn off the oven then leave your dish inside until the oven is no longer warm.
