So I really like to paint ceramics and dry brushing is my favorite technique. Sometimes it is hard to find things that have the detail to paint. I saw this cat in the store and it was 50% off! Well you know I love a deal! Only one problem, it is plaster and not ceramic. Plaster paints totally different and doesn’t really hold up to the dry brush technique. I thought this had enough rough edges that it would.
It did not hold up well. The plaster flakes off as the dry brush applies the paint! Well I had to make it work because I was determined to get it to!!! lol lol lol I used black for the base on it all and it took one more coat than it should have. Then I used gray and blue on the stones and that went without too much problem. Then I used purple and gray on the cat. This was where it really started to have problems. Just the pressure of the dry brushing made the black come off in a lot of places. I just kept going and came back in with more gray or purple trying to cover the white spots.
So it took a lot longer to do and more days of it sitting and then looking for fresh white spots but eventually this was the result! I like it now that it is done but will try to find ceramic in the future!!
