Anthropologie-inspired Atom art bowls

I’m not sure if we’ve officially announced that we are part of the DecoArt blogging team but the new DecoArt blog is the cutest and we’re simply thrilled to be a part of it (:

DecoArt blog

This month the team is sharing projects using DecoArt’s awesome line of fun glass products… from glass stain to glass paint markers, there is some cool stuff for anyone to use on just about any glass surface. We used the enamel writers and turned some standard thrift store white Corelle bowls into little works of art, inspired by Anthropologie’s gorgeous Atom bowls.

This project was a cinch to do with the enamel paint writers which are perfect for glass and glazed ceramics and hello, check out those fun colors! We also used the frost enamel, (which gives you the frosted glass finish while still providing the opaque, dimensional look.) They are easy to use and would be super fun for the littles to play with, too!

We simply had the screen of the Anthro atom bowls up and freehanded each design onto a bowl. Of course it’s not perfect but it sure is more fun displayed in my turquoise hutch than 3 boring white bowls, right? (;

    These are so cute! Potentially stupid question: can you eat out of these or are they mostly decorative? Just curious–I think we’re going to make these the next time I host craft night!

    Hi Kristi. I love these and they are something I could do with my children. My fav is still the mosaic luminary, but the bowls are fab too!

    Love these, Kristi! I’d have to have someone mail me these paints as I know I’d never ever find them here in Costa Rica, but I love the designs you made. I’ll have to give this a try with my colored Sharpies and see how it turns out. Love it! Pinning.

      Wow Sharpies would be adorable, Jelli! And yes, they’d be worth shipping! Costa Rica how fun!! (:
