Hi Im sure all yall are sick to death of "how to questions" but.............

I just got engaged (yay!) and I desperately want these wine glasses for our couples glasses.


Sadly the seller is taking a break from clay for awhile and this pair is sold. I thought Id try to make some similar ones myself, not a copy as my fiance wants me to add thorns and change the leaf shape.

Ive dabbled in clay and feel like I can do the leaves and whatnot fairly easily but my question is, how did she make them multi colored like that?  I havnt got a clue how to do it and I really love the look.

Could it be alcohol inks or a pearl ex type mica powder applied before baking? They are lovely.

Ask the seller how she did it, since she isn't doing clay right now.

My guess is that she used pearl Ex mica powder on unbaked clay.
