Baking Powder + Paint + Glass = Ceramic Art?

When I first saw a TikTok video from @genevavanderzeil about her creating beautiful ceramic pieces with only 3 main supplies, I was truly shocked. It looked so authentic and really looked like real ceramic. I had to try it for myself and I am so glad I did.

Supplies Needed

  • Glass container
  • Paint
  • Baking Powder
  • Paintbrush

Step 1

Begin by mixing your paint and baking powder. I personally eyeballed it depending on the size of the glass container that you were painting.

In terms of containers, try whatever you like! Be unique and find some funky shapes to paint. If you are looking for some really cool figures, look through thrift stores like Value Village.

Step 2

Use straight strokes up and down the container while trying not to layer on top of each other just yet. Once you fully cover the container, let it fully dry before attempting another coat. This way the paint will look smooth and even all over.

Add as many coats as you need in order for it to be opaque!

Step 3

You are done! It’s that simple. Display these pieces wherever you like, I personally have them on my dresser because they fit the theme of my room.

Hope you guys enjoyed and I hope you get a chance to try this out! Until next time 🙂
