Hello All!
Here is a mug I made for a friend (though by size, it's almost a bowl Grin ). This is a 99 cent thrift store mug that I fancied up with a black sharpie and some enamel paint, and baked in the oven to seal it. I've tried just sharpies in the past, and found the colors faded too much for my liking. The paint works fairly well though!



Thanks for looking!

It's very hard to pick a favorite mushroom, but I think it's the upsidedown one. Cheesy

I like the tiny baby one.  Lovely mug and a nice size for soup or French breakfast.

Thanks. Smiley

It's mostly practice. I still draw a lot of things that come out nothing like what's in my head.
