How To Paint Pottery

10 Amazing (and Easy!) Tutorials

Introduction

I’ve struggled with painting pottery. I used to notice how other artists would give their pottery artworks a realistic appeal, but I couldn’t manage the same. I then did what I usually do, and sat myself down for some pottery painting tutorials on YouTube. Once I had done my research, I eventually got the hang of it, and improved manifolds.

There are three ways to paint pottery. These include using watercolor, acrylics, or oil paints. Once you’re prepared with your resources, you can decide whether you want to paint a live image, or something from another picture or painting. When you’ve decided that, you can go ahead, and start painting.
