 Baby Geometric Pot

This was a 1/2 awesome, 1/2 awful dream realized. Dramatic.

What I mean by that is that the first half of this project turned out great. I found a cute bit of clay that was super cheap.  I followed the directions from the blog Delia Creates and made an adorable little clay pot. I love the geometric design. It was fun, pretty easy and I think the more I make the better I will get at it.

However, I wanted to color the bottom of it and I followed this creative blog, The Crafted Life, which shows you how to color pots using KoolAid. For many reasons I do not have KoolAid in my home. 1. I live in Korea and assume its not readily available. 2. It’s disgusting. How do people drink that stuff? 3. Following #2, I haven’t had KoolAid for the better part of 25 years.

I decided that some pomegranate tea, a beautiful pink color, should do the trick. I was wrong. See what happened below.

Dunh Dunh Duhhh.

Yes, as you can see, the tea…it didn’t work. Updates later on my solution to the pomegranate tea dyeing debacle.

Dramatic.
