    How to paint ceramics - for thrift store finds!

    How to paint ceramics from the thrift store: *** you will need rubbing alcohol== a paint brush== a lot of patience=== and this paint:== americana gloss enamels by decoart.... ===step one:== clean the ceramic with rubbing alcohol. no need to sand or anything!  just wet a cotton ball and wipe the surface clean!... =step two:= get to work. be patient. this takes years. (i never exaggerate.).... after a million coats:  (i think i did four-but i let each dry so painted over a course of days) i thought i had a pic, but can't find it. you should have a thick enough paint load that no underlying ceramic paint shows at all.... it looks so pretty at this point! but you're not done yet.... ==step three:== let the paint dry for 48 hours...͵ =step four: = preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit (i accidentally did mine at 350 and it worked fine)... =step five:= load in the oven and bake for 30 minutes
