  • How to make tableware. Watermelon Bowls Diy - Step 2
    Step 2

    1. Clean the outside of the bowl with rubbing alcohol
    2. Paint a line of dark green around the edge of the bowl about 1/4" wide
    *Dab the edges so it's a fuzzy line, not a clean, sharp line
    3. Paint seeds with black
    4. & 5. Paint a 3/4" wide fuzzy white line above the green fuzzy line overlapping them slightly
    6. Mix the True Red and White to create a dark pink and paint 2 coats over the seeds
    up to the white line
    7. Next paint over the entire bowl with white and let dry
    8. & 9. Paint part of the bowl with the Foliage Green
    10. While still wet, paint the rind stripes with the Dark Green
    *Thin at the center of the bowl and getting wider as you reach the rim
    11. Touch up until it looks like a watermelon rind
    12. Follow the instructions for curing and baking on the Gloss Enamels packaging
