Enamelled Letters

Been having fun over the past few days painting these little letters.

I covered them in black gesso, and then applied Pebeo black ceramic paint.  Whilst it was still wet I trailed Some Fantasy paints and some red Vitrail paint along the letters.

I then painted the inner and out edges, and finally the reverse side, and repeated what I did on the front side but with different colours.

So I can now have a red set or a green set or mix and match them.  It is of course fortunate that the letters that spell HOME are reversible!

of course should you wish you can pile them up!
Really, really pleased with the way these have turned out - the enamelled effect in real life is fantastic.
