Step by Step Procedure for Ceramic Pot Painting:

  • Mix 4 table-spoon of whitening powder, 1 table-spoon of plaster of paris to Fevicol and make a dough out of it.
  • Make flower from dough.
  • Let it dry for at least for 12 hours. Meanwhile paint the pot with brown color and let it dry.
  • Now stick the petals with help of Feviquick and color it with Golden Color.
  • Spread some Golden Color on rest of the pot to give antique look.
  • Lastly apply varnish over the pot and let it dry.

Instead of Whitening powder and plaster of paris you can also use ceramic powder, but it may not be easily available.
