Liz and I both chose to paint cereal bowls (Liz also painted a carrot magnet, which she fawned over the entire time). We were each allotted six paint colors to begin with and I chose a mix of blues, yellows and greens. I originally wanted to stamp a cityscape around the outside of the bowl, but the stamp ended up being rather difficult to use. I'm not sure if it was the half bottle of wine I drank or the fact that Easter had just passed, but I ended up painting a bowl that looked like an Easter egg.
When I picked up my "masterpiece" a couple weeks after my original visit, I was relieved to see the colors had darkened quite a bit. I'm still not totally thrilled with my design, but it was a fun experience overall.
