A first for me
« on: February 06, 2014, 07:11:44 PM »
Had a customer that wanted a sunflower set-not just glasses, but cream and sugar, salt and pepper, cruet, gravy boat, mugs and butter dish; all with sunflowers.  OK, can do that.  Then he asked if I had ever done plates.  Well, no, but I can paint in reverse on coasters so why not plates....so here is the result.



The paint is all on the back so it is safe to use and all in all, I'm pretty happy with it.  Just hope he is.

They're so pretty!  And you've definitely got an eye for placement.

Thank you....as far as placement, since they are painted in reverse (details first) I think that it is more luck than eye!

These are really pretty. Can't believe you hand painted all those. And they are perfect for this extremely snowy season  ;D

Don't kid yourself.  Painting a scatter of flowers on a disk is painting a scatter of flowers on a disk.  The composition is definitely a function of your eye for placement, and with anyone else could easily have turned out all wrong.
