Have you found a wonderful garage sale find? You love the shape but it’s the color just won’t work?
Sigh …. If only you could magically change it up.

Don’t send that favorite piece to Goodwill….
Instead let’s change it up with a few simple steps and a little bit of paint!
Simple Steps to Painting Ceramic
I loved this ceramic turkey I found at a thrift store but it was dated and the colors just didn’t work with my fall decorating.
Paint to the rescue!
I began by wiping down the piece with rubbing alcohol to clean and prepare the piece.
I then covered the ceramic piece with a coat of Primer Spray Paint. If needed, you can repeat the process with a second coat.
Allow the primer to dry on your piece.
The next step is to paint over the primer with your chosen color. I used Oil Rubbed Bronze to achieve the look on my piece.
To accent the feathers and give the piece dimension I lightly rubbed a bit of gold and copper Folk Art Metallics Paint on the ceramic turkey.
A light coat of Acrylic Spray Paint can be added for additional protection of your ceramic piece.
And you’re done!
Using these Simple Steps to Painting Ceramic you now have a whole new piece!
I loved the way it accented my fall display!
