Week Three – Plate Three – “Almond Blossom” – Hand Painted Decorative Plate by Ma’at Silk.

Plate number three.  This design was inspired by the beautiful almond blossom we get over here in the winter (usually in mid January).  It really is something else: the hill sides covered with a carpet of white and pink blossom. Although I changed the colours for the plate, adding yellow and a dark purple/red colour for the background, the petal formation is the same as the real flowers. It is my most detailed design so far, as I have highlighted the leaves and spots on the inner petals with extra gold gutta.

It took me about two and a half hours to paint and had two separate drying stages, plus a baking session in the oven – which makes it microwave safe, however it’s not officially food safe but as it’s only going to be used as a decorative plate that does not matter.

The photos were taken quickly in my studio and so are not the highest quality, but give a good idea of what they look like.

That’s 3 down and 9 more plates to go!

Have a creative day!
