One of the quickest and easiest ways to add life to any piece of pottery is with flowers. Today, we will share a couple of tricks that will make the art of roses super simple for anyone to master. You’ll be able to create this magnificent piece in no time!

Take the graphic rose first. Begin with a dab of color – it’s just a blob of paint. Red is always nice, but pink, yellow or even purple will also work well. When it is dry, use black puffy paint and in a squiggly, circular pattern, create your rose. Voila! And you thought it looked so hard.

Now how about a two dimensional rose that is anything but flat. Begin with a small “horseshoe” shape for the center. You can use a brush or a funwriter, both work well. Next, we will begin to build the flower by creating interlocking shapes that also form a circular perimeter. See the example. As the rose grow, the shapes get larger, and more free form. Add a green leaf or a stem, and before you know it, you will have a beautiful rose.

You can take the same two dimensional rose described above, and by adding a lighter color to the edges of the shapes, you can take it that one step further to create a three dimensional beauty.

Now that you know a few of the secrets, give it a try!
