Using a felt tip pen or soft pencil draw around round objects to create a spotty or circle design on your pottery. All pencil and felt tip lines when you paint your own pottery will disappear when your pottery is fired. This is because the professional firing is done at over 1000C causing the pencil and/or felt tip to burn off. You can then either paint inside the circles or leave the circles unpainted and paint the background. Areas not painted will go a creamy white when fired, how white the background is will depend on the type of glaze and bisque used. You can buy stencils with lots of different sized circles but you don’t need these, you could just draw round some pots, bottles or lids that you have in the cupboard at home.
You will want to protect the floor in the case of a spill or paint dripping from the brush or roller. The quickest and easiest way to protect the floor is to cover it with a drop cloth.

You will also want to make sure that the drop cloth is setting snuggly against the wall. Masking tape running along the edge of the drop cloth and the bottom of the wall will provide a snug connection.
