I wanted to paint this cool ceramic pineapple a fun, bright color but I didn’t want it to be permanent so I painted it with tube watercolor paint!
There are a few things to think about before you get started. The watercolor paint washes off easily from this ceramic pineapple because it’s already glazed. No not try this on unfinished ceramics if you want the paint to be temporary. If you are worried about permanent staining, test out an inconspicuous area before trying this tinting method. It’s better to be safe than sorry! On that note, let’s get started!
Add a couple of drops of water to the tube watercolor paint. Don’t add too much water as you’ll want it to be nice and thick.
Paint your ceramic with a even coat of paint.
You will probably need a couple of coats. I touched up the paint as I went along.
Let the paint dry for several hours before touching it. To remove, simply wash off watercolor paint with regular water. Have fun!
