Painting Ideas on Terracotta Jewelry
A jewelry which can be handcrafted by using clay (either air dry or fired clay) is called terracotta. Earlier, we discussed about making tools for terracotta jewelry. In this blog post, we are going to exchange some painting ideas on terracotta jewelry.
Being a jewelry designing professional, we encounter lots of challenges in customizing the piece, possibly as a flawless one. Here, the clay is kneaded, molded, shaped, and textured with different tools; thereby fired and painted beautifully. Now it is time to ignite creativity as we desire.
Painting Ideas on Terracotta Jewelry:
After giving some impressions on the clay mold, it will be sent for baking. Generally, clay can absorb moisture even after the baking process. So, it is advised to apply few coats of black acrylic color paint on the fired clay, with a piece of cotton ball. Keep aside and let it dry for sometime to offer uniform color texture.
Also, it will become easier to apply different color coats & designs on this clay piece once it is dried. We can indulge ourselves further in painting terracotta jewelry.
Now, we need a box full of fevicryl pearl colors and paint brushes in different sizes. It is good to choose the colors that match the Terracotta Designs. The basic advantage on applying black color as a base coat is to make the fevicryl colors stick perfectly with the designer jewel piece.
These fevicryl colors & brushes are available online for hassle-free purchase. Pick the brushes (i.e., size) according to our designs. Ensure to maintain brush strokes in one direction for an even texture. Do not clutter it. Take good care of the embossed shape cuts and plan something with heavenly color combinations.
Ensure to wipe the jewelry with a soft cotton after every use. It is a step-by-step process to spread the charm on all kinds of clothing with some ethnic designs. I am pretty sure that you get equally excited the way I am in making terracotta jewellery.
