CERAMIC WORK

~ CERAMIC WORK~
Here I am posting some of the ceramic work done by me. It is quite a task to mould the different shapes of leaves, flowers and other details in the beginning but later on with practice and patience I could do them quite easily. One more important thing about doing ceramic work is too use lot of imagination and experimenting, then only we can create many new things or otherwise we end up doing nothing but roses and leaves etc. The dough we prepare for ceramic work must be more bendable, elastic and soft then only the work comes out without any cracks. Use good quality ceramic powder for the dough making as it plays the most important role in it. Prepare the dough by mixing ceramic powder + fevicol. I have used acrylic and enamel paints for coloring. Will try to post some more of the works in the future. :-)


Ceramic Pot Painting

This is Ceramic pot Painting. You can make any designs like figures, flowers or just tapping some ceramic here and there and painting on them with different colours with ceramic dough. So try out some different designs.
I have tried out making roses on this pot.


I have tried out making grapes on this pot.

Ceramic Tile Painting

This is Ceramic tile painting, this one is a different design. On it’s back side I have made a hook so that we can hang it on a wall as a wall piece.

Ceramic Pen Stand

You can make lot of things using ceramic. Ceramic pen stand sounds different but its nothing different than the making of ceramic pot painting. Its not only designing pot using ceramic powder there are different things you can make out of this ceramic dough. Here I made a beautiful and useful pen stand.
Materials:
1. Ceramic powder
2. Fevicol
3. Card board
How to make:
1. Make dough of ceramic by mixing ceramic powder and fevicol and take small pieces out of it, roll the dough as shown.

2. Now make it into triangle, oval shape or any shape that you like to. 3. Take card board as base and place these pieces one above the other and make a beautiful pen stand.
4. After drying it colour the stand and decorate it as you want.
Handmade things are always natural and good looking, so here is one beautiful handmade pen stand for you. You can make different shapes and sizes.
Here is the one I made. :-)

  2. Hi Darshee,

    Thanks for visiting my blog. Good to know you are interested in doing some ceramic work :-) You are planning to do it on pot or tiles?

    I stay in India in Pune city where I can buy it usually from stationary shops over here. I think you can get it in any kids toy shop or stationary shop or wallmart over there. It's i think also called as play clay and when I was in Germany I got it in colored form from one shop. Also I think you can buy online over there by searching on google for shops nearby to your city. :-)

    Do write back if you have any further query. Also please send me snaps of your ceramic work :-)


    Be in touch.. Take care..

    Cheers,
    Anjali

  10. Hi Aarti,
    Thank you for visiting this post. There is no specific proportion. It's on everyone independent judgement of mixing it.

  15. Hi Archana,
    You can get ceramic powder in either Thipsandra or Shivaji nagar. Also you can get in most of the hardware shops or big size stationary shops where you get greeting card preparation material or decoration material etc..these shops also keep ceramic powder.

  16. Hi Anjali,

    Nice art....and thanks for explaining the Dough preparation. When I start mixing the ceramic powder and fevicol, dough is sitcking to my hands because of fevicol, it is not coming to hand like chapathi flour to prepare flowers. Not sure what did I miss in preparing the Dough.


    Thanks,
    Rajani.

    1. Hi Rajani,
      Thanks !
      Well the fevicol quantity might be more than the required proportion. You can wear a plastic glove and try otherwise 1st apply dry ceramic powder to the hands like we do with flour while cooking :-)

  19. hi anjali your crafts are very nice. I have some doubt. is this ceramic powder the same as the ceramic material in pour tea cups? can we fix the ceramic flowers on tea cups that we use? Does it fix well with glue? If yes, when should be the ceramic flower be glued (after it is dried or before becoming dry)? Is there any other option to fix the ceramic flowers on the ceramic tea cup becuase both are smooth surfaces.

    Is the ceramic powder and porcealin powder the same?
    please advice.

  20. hi anjali ur craft works are really nice. I have a doubt. can we fix ceramic flowers on ceramic tea cup. both of them are smooth so would they tightly stick together strongly?

    is there any process for fixing the ceramic flowers or other items on ceramic tea cup other than glue?

    is the ceramic powder and the porcelain powder are the same?

    please advice
    thanks
