A Simple Terra Cotta Bowl gets an Aztec Inspired Hand Painted Makeover
This is how the bowl looked initially before I went ahead and painted the entire bowl in a bright orange color.
For the Aztec Design part I cut out stencils from an old newspaper nothing to fancy. Cut out two sizes one was large and the other one was a bit smaller.
I placed the larger stencil in the middle and traced an outline with a pencil and the smaller stencils i traced around the entire rim of the bowl.
After that I took out my white paint and with a really thin pointed brush started filling in the design.
When that was all filled and painted, I went over the larger design in the middle with Pastel Green Paint and outlined the entire design.
Also I outlined all the designs with a Gold Sharpie.
And that is how you make an Aztec Inspired Clay Bowl.
