I bought these plain white mugs in Muscat and since we were relocating I just stashed them away. I finally got some basic ceramic paints and decided I would complete the project.
Ceramic Paint – Fevicryl Basic Pack *
Cloth – Just to keep your hands clean
*Now before purchasing the ceramic paints make sure they are oven proof, the reason for that is to ensure the paints are water proof, you need to dry it for 1-2 days and then bake it in an oven as per the instructions mentioned on the pack.
I googled for some ideas on what design I wanted to recreate…and came across this lovely site on etsy. I loved her work…so simple and so very pretty.
However I couldn’t get the fineness that she’s got…guess it will come with practice.
I made another pair but this one’s an original piece, the spirals were inspired by the zentangle pattern 🙂
Honestly I am not satisfied with the finishing but like I said need to keep practicing to get it better, so make sure you don’t give up and keep pushing yourself 🙂
