How to Make

  1. Mix shades of turquoise, grey, light pink, dark pink and yellow in the palette using your selection of paint and paint a zig zag in turquoise across the middle.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

Top Tip

Add a coat of varnish if you'd prefer a satin sheen finish rather than the matte effect created by the paint.
