Old World Pottery Painting Technique

Materials:

  • Krylon General Purpose Metallic - Gold (#1706)
  • Krylon Premium Metallic - 18 KT. Gold Plate (#1000)
  • Krylon Stained Glass Color - Red (#9020)
  • Krylon Stained Glass Color - Blue (#9021)
  • Clay pot or Project of your choice
  • Newspaper
  • Disposable rubber gloves (optional)

Surface Preparation:

  • When working with unfinished wood, prepare your surface by sanding smooth and wiping clean with a tack cloth. Apply a primer to seal the surface.
  • When working with bare metal, be sure surface is free of rust and oil. Apply a primer to seal the surface.
  • When working with plastic, glass or ceramic, lightly sand surface with fine grain sandpaper and wipe clean with a tack cloth. This will help the paint to adhere better to these smooth surfaces. Apply a primer to further improve adhesion.

Steps:

  1. Place project on newspaper to protect work area.
     
  2. Randomly spray light bursts of Gold Metallic and Red and Blue Stained Glass on all sides of project, until covered. Let dry.
     
  3. Lightly mist Gold Metallic over entire project.
     
  4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 until you achieve the desired effect. Let dry thoroughly.
     
  5. For added protection of your finished project, spray several light coats of Krylon® Crystal Clear as a final step. For projects that will be used outdoors or near a window, use Krylon® UV-Resistant Clear.
