I've done ceramics for most of my life. These are poured from molds, fired, and then painted with arcylic paint, then sealed. I made them for my boyfriend's family, one for each: His Mom, Dad, little brother, little sister, and his big brother and his sister in law, and one for my boyfriend too.
These are very easy to make, but they look like I spent hours. They probably take maybe 30 minutes max each to paint, but I've also been making them for a while. It takes long to pour the molds and fire them, so I usually make a whole bunch with my grandmother, leaving them to finish with paint as needed. She used to make them and sell them (along with much more impressive things) at craft fairs. Once when I was in highschool I made about 100, and sold them for 3$ each. The money was donated to an charity that buys art supplies for disadvantaged children.
Anyway, here they are. Interested parties may have a tutorial if they'd like.
