How to Make
- Mix shades of turquoise, grey, light pink, dark pink and yellow in the palette using your selection of paints.
- Either sketch your design onto the heart with a pencil, using the picture as a guide, or take a fine paintbrush and paint a zig zag in turquoise across the middle.
- Paint a light pink zig zag design at the top of the porcelain blank and leave to dry. Add a yellow zig zag at the bottom and fill in.
- Thread with ribbon, then display as desired. For the bird, paint on a border of turquoise. Add a grey wing, then leave to dry. Draw on a curved line for the eye, as shown, and a yellow beak. Draw small, white curved 'c' shapes onto the wing in white to create the appearance of feathers. Thread with ribbon and display.
Add a coat of varnish if you'd prefer a satin sheen finish rather than the matte effect created by the paint.
