Terra cotta saucers are inexpensive and easily painted. So I measured the circumference of my cloche and off to the gettin' place to buy some saucers.
You'll notice that I have purchased two....one to fit the cloche on and the smaller one to flip over for the stand, or foot, which ever you prefer........
I use E6000 to glue most things, for me it works the best.
Glue the smaller saucer to the bigger one and let that cure
I wanted to paint mine white, but any color would do......I used standard acrylic paint.
I let the paint almost dry, and took a damp cloth and removed some of the paint around the edges. I didn't want to use sandpaper because, if you've ever worked with terra cotta you know it sands off too, right along with the paint. I did a wash of watered down burnt umber and let it dry over night.
OK pictures......take it from here!
Just think of the possibilities!
On to some Thrifty Love.............
On my way home from getting my hair cut on Saturday , I wasn't going to stop, I swear I wasn't, I could see it coming up on the left....I was just going to keep driving.......but then some how I ended up in the turning lane and somehow I parked right in front of the Goodwill and I'm not really sure how it happened...I must have blacked out...but since I was there, I thought I'd go ahead on in.
This is what I found:
Do you see this b-e-a-utiful soup tureen? Well it wasn't this beautiful when I found it, but It washed up wonderfully.............$3.00
Next, I'm lovin' this divided little bowl........$2.00.....can't you just see black olives on one side and green on the other?
OK, I know this is going to be hard to believe but I scored a turkey platter..........$4.00.........Isn't it a beaut? When I got home my husband mention how long my hair appointment was and why did I bring home a platter with a rooster on it.........geez....now you know why I'm here......
Well there you have it....thanks for joining me, I know this has been terribly long.
