Ikat Chevron Bowl Makeover

Ikat Chevron Bowl MakeoverI’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.

beforeAnd with some colors and Zig Zag brushstroke pattern I ended up with my very own Ikat Chevron 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.

Lastly I went ahead with my Gold Sharpie and colored the entire rim of the bowl in Gold.
