I honestly don't know if this is the right place to be posting this:) It is painting, but it's on a mug sooo...?

Anyway, this was my first time playing with my new porcelain paints! I didn't have a plan when I started painting. I was just testing out which painting techniques work best, so the whole layout is not very cohesive.

Everything is free hand..

Interesting paints though, kind of difficult to work with, but oh so much fun! they work best if you have a super light hand. you can see in the different foxes what it looks likes if you layer
(I don't recommend it, tends to want to pick up the previous layer and ruin the whole thing)

Comments and critiques always appreciated:)

OMG that is the CUTEST mug I've ever seen!!!!

I love your technique! The branches of the tree, and the swirl on the left-facing fox's hip are especially darling Cheesy

I absolutely adore these!!  Foxes are my favorite wild animal! Amazing!

This is beautiful!  Are there three foxes or four?  It's interesting to see the different techniques all on the same basic concept like that, and it makes for a very unique and interesting mug.  It's wonderful!  Are the paints food safe?
