Since we are doing a divination class in the harry potter craftalong http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=408525.0 . I decided do do a divination tea set with tea leaves that have to do with good and bad omens. The tea pot has a painting of Hogwarts that I have always loved.  I used glass enamel paint to paint on them and set them in the oven and plan on putting a clear coat for durability. On one side of the lid it says Hogwarts on the other side it says Harry Potter. 

Since I already made a mug set with the logos of each house on it http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=371959.msg4376351#msg4376351 I thought a more simple design of the names of each house and the handles in the house colors would be nice.

 Now inside each cup is a tea leaves in good and bad omen shapes. 
Gryffindor has a grim-death,

 Ravenclaw has a skull-danger in your path,

 Hufflepuff has acorns-windfall

, and Sytherin has a sun-great happiness.

Here is a pic of the whole set together

I can't wait to start using it.  I might need to have a HP party just to serve tea with it.  Grin
C&C welcome.

Amazing job on painting the castle.

Love the idea of permanent tea leaves in the bottoms of the cups, I'd also like to know what you used to make them food-safe. All the enamel paints I've seen say that you're not supposed to use them on any parts that actually touch food or your mouth. I'd especially be worried since these are gonna be sitting at the bottom of a puddle of hot liquid for an extended amount of time.

For right now the cups with permanent leaves im looking into different glazes possibly a food grade silicone sealant. Since i was able to get 8 mugs for 40cents a piece i figured the one set will be for decoration.

Oh ok, yeah can't beat 40 cents a piece for mugs, don't need to be useful at that price  Cheesy

Please let us know when you do find something food safe that works, I know I'd love to do something like this as I'm sure some others would.

Until you find something suitable, you could try using clear glass mugs and putting the leaves on the bottom of the outside. You could even use real leave and kinda decopage them on with the clear enamel paint, I've used the clear enamel to apply glitter to glasses before so I'm sure it would work with dried tea leaves.

I just can't stop oogling this set, chughes! I was wondering where you bought the mugs you used. You've inspired me to try painting a HP mug for myself Smiley

I got really lucky at the Village thrift store. The cups were 40 cents a piece and the teapot was $1.50.  Im going to keep my eyes open for more. Wink

Wow! This is awesome. The painting of Hogwarts on the tea pot is very impressive. I didn't realize that you could paint on ceramics at home and have it look that polished.
