I’ve been obsessing over the Ikat pattern for quiet some time now so I ended up making the Ikat Chevron version of it. Since I am a fan of projects which aren’t supposed to be perfect and who doesn’t love a good Chevron pattern, both of them together who would say NO to that.The crazy you get with the colors the more pretty it looks since its all about blending, blending and more blending.
So I started of with a plain Earthen Bowl.
This is what I thought I was happy with but at the end I went in again and added more Light Blue. The more you blend and add in colors the better it looks.I used roundabout five colors white, dark blue, sky blue, hot pink and Gold for this Bowl.
Firstly I started of with the deep dark blue color and painted a Chevron pattern, no need for it to look perfect just keep on painting away in vertical brushstrokes.
Then I added a layer of white paint and kept on building the colors one by one. You really need to blend together the colors to get the Jagged look that Ikat is known for. After the white I went in with Hot Pink and the rest of the colors.
Lastly I went ahead with my Gold Sharpie and colored the entire rim of the bowl in Gold.
