Martha Stewart Living, July 2007
Place the photocopied page on the vinyl sheet. Using the craft knife, carefully cut around the image, creating a stencil; discard the cutout.
Tape or adhere the stencil to a bowl, and then paint inside the stencil. (It may take a few coats to cover the surface completely.) Repeat with remaining bowls.
Fire bowls in an oven according to the directions on the paint packaging.
Image to use as a stencil
Thin sheet of vinyl or plastic (preferably self-adhesive)
Large ceramic latte bowls
Porcelain or ceramic paint
We used an image of a horse as our stencil, but you can use any design that captures your attention. The project will be easier if you pick an image that doesn't have a lot of intricate detail; you may want to consult a stencil book.
