Painting Ceramics With Fusion Mineral Paint

Today I'm going to try something new.  I paint with Fusion Mineral Paint all the 
time and I love it but today I'm trying a new product by Fusion.

My test ceramic piece was a gift from a family member and if you're reading this right now Barbara, please know that I like it even better now. 

The piece in question is a tall vessel and top with a bird. There are so many things I like about it, the raised dots, the birds, the bird on the top... just the color is well, green.

While it was very pretty.... I swear Barbara it was.... I had always wished it was white. 

So here goes....

I'm trying Ultra Grip by Fusion Mineral Paint. I painted the piece with the Ultra Grip and let it dry.

Then I painted it with Fusion Mineral Paint in Casement... My favorite white.

The paint sticks to the Ultra Grip and goes on smoothly. I gave it 2 coats.

It's looking better already! (this photo is one coat)

When the paint dried I brought it outside and sprayed it with Krylon Triple Thick Clear Glaze.

The Clear Glaze gave the chalky paint the look of shiny ceramic.

I discovered that this vessel was the perfect size to store TP for the bathroom.

Perfect fit! 

So this little used green bird vessel is now the perfect color and size for my master bathroom.

  1. I've been wondering how the various paints work on glazed ceramic! One down, and 299 to go! It looks nice, and I love that it holds TP! Thank you for sharing.
