How to Create Ceramic Brushstroke Hearts

Brushstroke patterns are bang on trend at the moment, appearing on everything from fashion to home decor. It is definitely a trend to try out for yourself as it’s so simple to do and looks incredibly modern, yet chic. Follow these step by step instructions to create your very own!

You Will NeedHow to Make

1. Before applying any paint to the ceramic hearts, why not have a try on a piece of paper to see how each brushstroke will look depending on which paintbrush you use, how much paint you use or how much pressure you apply when spreading the paint.

When you have found your desired look, get stuck in! (Make sure to leave to dry before moving on to step 2.)

Top tip! Why not mix different coloured acrylic paints together to create an ombre brushstroke?

2. This step depends on how far you want to go with the ceramic hearts. Maybe you want to leave them as they are with just brushstroke marks on them or maybe you want to personalise them further… If you’d like to do this, please read on.

Take a fine paintbrush and some gold acrylic paint to paint a thin outline on the edge of the ceramic heart. Leave to dry.

By now, everything should be dry. You can now start personalising with initials using a black Posca pen!

3. Select a ribbon that suits the colour palette of your Ceramic Brushstroke Hearts to complete the look.
