Oh my goodness, that is too adorable. You have a really lovely hand, the painting is so beautifully done. The foxes are wonderful, but I think the little owl friend might take the cake!  Cheesy

This is fantastic! I am such a sucker for anything containing wild critter whimsey, and this is delightful. It's always nice when testing something, that even though you may not think it to be cohesive, it's too adorable to even matter Grin thanks for the description on the paint as well, I almost picked some up the other day, but it was on a whim and I had passed, this gave me a little bit of an idea on what to expect.

WOW! Thanks Everyone! I'm flattered and so happy you like it!

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?

There are three foxes:). there's some controversy as to if they are food safe or not, the paints are Pebeo Porcelaine 150, the web site states that the paints are non toxic before baking and "Inadvertent contact with food or drink is not a health hazard" but they are not FDA approved, the website sent this reply to the editors at Adorn;

"Hi Ginger. We have contacted Pebeo and have confirmed that the Pebeo Porcelaine Paint 150 used in our Adorn feature is food safe. The paint has been tested at Duke University, and was reported non-toxic and food safe for food contact.
Though the paint is non-toxic, it is not recommended for use on a dinner plate because sharp objects, such as a steak knife, could damage the design and bacteria could potentially become trapped in cracks caused by utensils. However, the paint itself is not harmful to ingest even if scraped off.
The reason the paint is not currently FDA approved is cost. The cost for FDA approval is approximately $50,000 per paint color, which Pebeo may pursue at a future time."

I plan on selling these In the future so I will avoid painting the top half inch of mugs just to be safe. hope this helped:)

Thank You:) the paint I used is Pebeo  Porcelaine 150 Smiley most of the colors are definitely a bit Transparent, but when mixed with ivory they become more opaque, an example is the foxes are just Transparent paints mixed together and the tree is Transparent mixed with ivory, I also suggest buying a few Pebeo Porcelaine 150 Paint Markers they are very useful, I used the black for outlining and brown for most of the owl and some bits on the tree (both are semi Transparent ). Have fun!
