Hand-decorated Giraffe with Pebeo Porcelaine 150

Hand decorated Giraffe Money Box
Recently in was in Spotlight and realised how many gorgeous, simple, white ceramic products there are which are perfect for customising. Whether you want to add you own decor colours, decorate something as a gift or just enjoy a creative project, there are so many ideas and options.

For this project I chose this cute Ceramic Giraffe Money Box , but you could use any ceramic figurine that appeals to you.

If you have problems removing the sticky label before starting, try OOmh, (below) it's available at Bunnings and worked for me. 

*TIP * I also recommend keeping some Isopropyl alcohol such as Isocol or Diggers handy as it an easy way to remove a smudges (use it with a cotton tip) or rub off something you are not happy with.

Other materials for this project:
  • Pebeo Porcelaine 150 paints in Olivine Green, Ivory and Scarlet Red
  • Pebeo Porcelaine 150 Markers in Scartlet Red, Anthracite Black, Amazonite Green, Lapis Blue and Black Fine Liner
  • Small round Brush

Start with some simple flowers, I used Pebeo Porcelaine 150 Marker in Scarlet Red.
Mix Pebeo Porcelaine 150 Paints in Scarlet Red and Ivory to make a pink to fill the petals with a small round brush. Use Pebeo Porcelaine 150 Marker in Amazonite Green to draw stalks.
Use your green marker to add leaves and  Pebeo Porcelaine 150 paint Olivine Green and small round brush to add colour. Use your Lapis Blue and Black Markers to daw eyes and nostrils, and Scarlet red Marker for lips.
Use Pebeo Porcelaine 150 Marker in Anthracite Black to draw circles around the flowers.
Draw random dots with the Black marker the use Pebeo Porcelain 150 Black Fine Liner Marker for the little lines.
Use the fine liner to make dotty stalks.
Use Green Marker to draw in swirly leaves.
To make the Paint permanent bake in the oven as per instructions on the packaging.
