What Is Painted Pottery?
Painted pottery is a type of art where you can paint designs onto pots and bowls or other pottery utensils. You can do this with a variety of different materials, including clay, glaze, and paint. Painted pottery has been around for centuries and is still popular today. You can use many different techniques to paint pottery, and each one produces unique results.
You can try painting your pottery for both functional as well as decorative purposes. Functional pottery is designed to be used for everyday tasks such as cooking and storage. Decorative pottery is meant to be displayed and admired, but you can not use it. You can even try other arts like DIYing jewelry and ornaments with painted pottery.
Painted Pottery Bowl Ideas
There are various techniques for painted pottery, you can find some of the ideas with explanations below.
Glass Bowl Painting
One of the most common and popular techniques for pottery painting is painting on a glass bowl. You can do it with any type of paint, but acrylics work best. To start, clean the bowl with soapy water and rinse it well. Then, dry the bowl completely before beginning to paint. When painting on a glass bowl, it is important to use a light touch. Too much pressure can cause the paint to crack. Begin by painting the outside of the bowl with a thin layer of paint. Allow the first layer to dry completely before adding another layer of paint. Once you are satisfied with the coverage, allow the final layer of paint to dry completely before using the bowl. You can try decorating with different shapes and designs to make the bowl more interesting.
Painting With Adhesive Stencils
Adhesive stencils are a great way to add intricate details and patterns to your painted pottery. Simply place the stencil on the surface of the pottery, then paint over it with your desired color. When you peel away the stencil, you’ll have a beautiful design!
One word of caution: be sure to use a stencil adhesive that is specifically fit for ceramic surfaces. Regular old masking tape or even spray adhesive can cause the paint to peel away from the pottery.
If you’re not confident in your freehand painting skills, don’t worry! Adhesive stencils are an easy way to get professional-looking results.
There are a few things to keep in mind when using adhesive stencils:
- Make sure the surface of the pottery is clean and free of any dirt or debris. Otherwise, the stencil might not stick properly.
- Use a light touch when painting over the stencil. You don’t want to glob on too much paint, or you’ll risk making a mess.
- Peel away the stencil slowly and carefully. If any paint comes up with the stencil, just let it dry and then touch up the area later.

DIY Painted Bowls
Painted pottery is a beautiful and unique way to add decoration to your home. Bowls are a great way to start if you’re new to painting pottery, as they’re simple shapes that are easy to work with. Plus, you can use them for so many different things – from holding fruit on the kitchen counter to using it as a pretty catch-all dish on an entryway table.
There are two different methods you can use to paint bowls – either by using a brush or by using a sponge. If you’re using a brush, start with small, even strokes and build up the color gradually. For a more textured look, try using a sponge to apply the paint. Experiment with different techniques and colors to create a design that’s all your own.
Once you’re happy with your design, allow the paint to dry completely before using your bowl. You can use painted pottery just like any other type of pottery – so get creative and have fun!

DIY Sharpie Dinnerware
Painted pottery not just enhances the look of your cutlery but is a beautiful and unique way to add a personal touch to your dinnerware. You can find painted pottery at many different stores, but it can be expensive. A cheaper alternative is to DIY Sharpie dinnerware. You can easily transform any white dinnerware into beautiful, one-of-a-kind Sharpie dinnerware easily.
You will need White dinnerware (plates, bowls, cups, etc.), Sharpies in various colors, rubbing alcohol, a bowl or cup for the rubbing alcohol, and a paper plate. Here is how to do it.
- Start by placing your white dinnerware on the paper plate. This will help to keep your work area clean.
- Next, choose the colors of Sharpie that you would like to use. You can either go with a monochromatic look or use multiple colors. Once you have decided on your colors, start drawing designs on your dinnerware with Sharpies. Be as creative as you want!
- After you have finished drawing your designs, it’s time to set them. To do this, dip a cotton ball or Q-tip in the rubbing alcohol and then lightly go over your Sharpie designs. The alcohol will help to set the ink so that it doesn’t come off on your hands or clothing.
- Allow the rubbing alcohol to dry completely and then enjoy your new Sharpie dinnerware!
DIY Handpainted Pottery Bowl
To get started, you’ll need a pottery bowl, some paintbrushes, and a set of ceramic paints. You can find all of these supplies at your local craft store. Once you have your supplies, set up a work area where no one interrupts you. Then, take a look at your pottery bowl and decide what design you want to paint. Once you have a design in mind, it’s time to start painting!
There are a few different painting techniques that you can use when painting your pottery bowl. One popular technique is to use a sponging method. To do this, you’ll need a natural sponge and two ceramic paints in different colors. Begin by dipping your sponge into one of the paint colors and then dabbing it onto your pottery bowl. Then, dip the sponge into the second paint color and lightly blot over the first color. Continue this process until you’re happy with the results.
Another painting technique that you can use is called sgraffito. This technique is similar to sponging, but instead of using a sponge, you’ll use a sharp object like a toothpick or a needle. Begin by dipping your sharp object into one of the paint colors and then scratching it onto your pottery bowl. Then, dip the sharp object into the second paint color and lightly scratch over the first color. Continue this process until you’re happy with the results.
Once you’ve finished painting your pottery bowl, set it aside to dry. Let it dry and then you can add a clear glaze to protect your design. Then, place your pottery bowl in the oven and bake it according to the instructions on the paint set. Once it’s finished baking, your pottery bowl is ready to use!
Sharpie Art Bowls
With a little bit of creativity and some household supplies, you can make your very own Sharpie art bowls! All you need is a ceramic bowl (preferably white), some Sharpies in various colors, and rubbing alcohol. First, draw your design on the bowl with Sharpies. Then, use a cotton swab to lightly dab rubbing alcohol onto the design. The Sharpie ink will start to spread and blend, creating a beautiful watercolor-esque effect. Let the bowl dry completely before using it.
DIY Colorblock Wooden Bowls
These bowls are so fun and easy to make! We love how they turned out – each one is unique and has such great character. You can use any colors you want to create your own custom set. You will need unfinished wooden bowls, acrylic paint in various colors, a paintbrush, and a clear sealer (optional). Here’s how you do it:
- Start by painting the bottom of each bowl with a base color. I used white for mine. Let the paint dry completely before moving on to the next step.
- Next, use tape to create stripes or other patterns on the bowls. I did a mix of both – some with horizontal stripes and some with diagonal stripes.
- Once the bowls are taped off, begin painting each section with a different color. I used a variety of bright colors for mine.
- Remove the tape while the paint is still wet and let the bowls dry completely. If desired, you can seal them with a clear sealer to protect the paint.
These bowls are so cute and would make great gifts! They’re also perfect for storing small items like jewelry or keys.
DIY Painting On Ceramic And Porcelain
Ceramic and porcelain painting is a fun way to add your personal touch to any room in your house. But before you start painting, it’s important to understand the different types of paints and finishes that are available.
Two main types of paint that you can use on ceramic and porcelain are glaze and underglaze. The glaze is a clear or colored coating that is fired onto the surface of the piece. Underglaze is applied before the glaze and you can either paint it or apply it with a stencil.
When painting with glaze, it’s important to apply it evenly. Use a soft brush and make sure to avoid any drips. Once the glaze is dry, you can apply a second coat if necessary.
Apply the underglaze before the glaze. You can paint it directly or apply it with a stencil, whatever suits your skill type. If you’re a beginner, you must go with using a stencil to avoid making any mistakes. When painting with underglaze, it’s important to use a light touch.
