This was our "Christmas Card" photo...It's one of my faves!
You will remember that we rescued our little angel Maxwell from the pound back in September. I call him Maxwell...my husband calls him "Mr. Max" which totally fits his personality. Maxwell has been my inspiration for so many ideas...smART Club projects featured "Max" and the new "Tiny Tots" feature "Tiny Tot Max"!
Tiny Tot Max! Isn't he just so sweet!!!
How adorable are these projects...if you click on the image it will take you to a Paint Your Own Pottery studio directory and you can create your own masterpiece!
Don't forget to post your projects on our gallery...that way everyone can enjoy your fantastic creations!

Would you believe it if I told you that it was completed by an 11 year old!?!?!
Yep...it was created by Dean's (Dippin Dean, Rockin Dean) daughter Allison.
She was doing a country report on Greece and noticed pottery is part of their history, then asked her Dad if she could create a pottery piece like the Greeks did to turn in with her report?
(hello extra credit!)
Anyway...Allison used Satin Glazes in Banana Cream to paint the bisque vase, then added EZ Strokes in Cobalt Jet Black to create the design...like the Majolica technique. She then detailed the "hats and pants" with Concepts Really Red...finishing off the handles and top rim portion of the vase with Envision Glazes in Very Black! Ok..the kicker on this was Allison had a picture of what she wanted to paint and FREEHANDED her design work!!!
She did an absolute fantastic job, I must say...Allison totally proves our purpose statement
"We Make It Easy To Expierence Creativity and The Excitement Of Personal Accomplishment"
Great job Allison!!!!
