I am excited to share how to make these diy painted bowls! Specifically, a nested set of mixing bowls can be easily personalized for your own kitchen or for a gift recipient.
When I pondered this painted bowl project, I knew I needed to find bowls whose sides were more vertically plumb than tapered. Anytime you are applying a stencil, it is always easier the straighter and less curved the surface.

This porcelain microwave, oven and dishwasher safe nested mixing bowl set by Dowan was perfect and I was thrilled to be sent the mixing bowls, in addition to a teapot, butter keeper and lovely fluted bowls by Dowan. The sides of the teapot are equally straight and so would be easy to stencil as well.
While my Dowan mixing bowls are porcelain, this process will work for ceramic as well.
While ceramic and porcelain are both made of clay and other elements, the clay used for porcelain is more refined. It is fired at a higher temperature and greater pressure, resulting in a product which is more harder and denser than ceramic. As such, porcelain has proven to be more durable than ceramic

I don’t think anyone can say that DIY Painted Bowls will be 100% dishwasher safe. I think with each repeated dishwashing, the paint is liable to start chipping. That being said, making sure your surface is clean before painting, using the Testors paint, letting the paint cure and baking will definitely prolong the life of your painted image.
I haven’t decided if I am going to keep these or give them to our daughter, who is starting out with her first apartment after graduation. Hmmm….decisions, decisions.
