Ive been into painting mugs for swaps of late.  I used a glass and cermaic paint that you bake in the oven.

The first one I did for the doctor who swap.  I did the tardis exploding like the van gogh painting they did for the show http://www.panicposters.com/doctor-who-van-gogh-tardis-poster.html.  I love how it turned out.  I really enjoying painting in that type of style too.




The next one is inspired by this mug on etsy http://www.etsy.com/listing/29196153/true-blood-mug-bite-me-bill-vampire-bite.  but since I couldn't add the fangs to the top I added them on the bottom of the mug, but forgot to get a picture of that but my partner did http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/medium/97355_09Sep12_IMG_0365.jpg

This piece is awesome!

If you dont mind me asking what brand of glass/ceramic paint do you use on your mugs?

I use Americana gloss enamels.  They color beautifully and the images are long lasting with hand washing.
