just finished these 4 mugs, two for BF and the others for my father's friend.
I made a reindeer floating on a clear brown mug last year, I thought it was making more sense, like he was floating in coffee or chocolate, but I had a bunch of white mugs to deal with before I'm allowed to buy some more Smiley
I found the star wars and trumpet designs on the internet.
I rushed a little for the ones with santa and reindeer so I'm not completely satisfied with some details but oh well... Smiley









C&C welcome, thanks for looking Smiley

I love these, they're so cute. I found them looking for advice for mine, I'm painting a mug for my dad for christmas....

what kind of paint did you use, and did you use anything to seal it? are they washable? I was thinking spray on varnish, but I figured that may be a little toxic? any advice would be awesome (:

Hi!

I used Pbo porcelain paint and glass paint. no seal, they just went 40min in the oven to fix them. I abandoned the idea of seal cause the ones I made before hold on quite well, I just wash them gently by hand, they don't go in the dishwasher (normally I think they could but... I'm cautious Smiley and I was afraid the sealer would be too apparent...
