Handmade Ceramic Paint Palettes

My passion (passion talaga?!) for art materials has evolved through the years (naks!). Putting the workshop kits together is one of my main motivators for holding my workshops. 😛  I love sharing my favorite art supplies with my students. Now that I make my own handmade watercolors, I thought it would be great to pair them with some handmade palettes as well.

I first experimented with these palettes at Craft Camp Antipolo last year. I made a couple of palettes to test the shrinkage and usability. Made some plates and a spoon, too! 🙂

A few weeks after drying and baking, I got my ceramic pieces! Unwrapping them is always the best part. Love this small one–it fits inside my pencil case, and has the perfect depth for watercolor mixtures.

Was so happy with the output, that I felt the need to share this with fellow watercolor enthusiasts. So I made a whole new batch (about 36 pieces) to sell at the Handmade Watercolor Weekend on March 25.

Made a bunch of different shapes so that no two are exactly the same. (Also because I’m no pro, so they will really all look different from one another, haha.)

Swing by early on March 25 to get dibs on these pieces! They’re just P300 per palette. 😉

Watercolor Process: Glazing

The glazing technique in watercolor is layering wet washes over dry ones. I’m still horribly suffering from jetlag, and just made most of the time by testing out my new handmade watercolors. Here’s a step-by-step look into my watercolor…
