Pottery Painting

One afternoon, our departments at work took a little break - a MUCH NEEDED break!  We like to call it "team building".  We went to Be Wild for Art in Norman, Oklahoma.  You pick the piece you want to paint, your colors, brushes - and let me tell you, there are TONS of items to pick from!  It was so hard to decide!!

These are all the colors of paint

They even have a bling bar - can't go wrong with a little bling!

Pick your poison!

I will be doing a platter next!

Aren't they all so intensely focused?!?  I love how they all seemed to manage a "We are trying to paint, get the camera out of our face" smile!

I knew I wanted to do something for my kitchen so it had to be turqouse and yellow - this was my inspiration.

I chose to do a spoon rest - plus I wanted to start small :)

After they fire the paint, it gets so much darker - crazy.

After I was done with the spoon rest, I wanted to do something else.'s kind of addicting.  Soooo...I decided to make David a mug for his birthday.  This is why I've waited so long to post these pictures - his birthday is the end of December and I didn't want to spoil the surprise.

Here they are after having them fired.  See how much darker they look??  I love it!

My finished products!

IMPOSSIBLE to get everyone looking - they hate me because I force pictures upon them!
I can wait to go back. I think we need another team building exercise!!

So much fun! I haven't done this in years, way back when I worked at a day care center. I love how bright it all turned out!
