I ogled at mugs like these on etsy for the longest time before finally trying it out as part of a mermaid-themed gift basket. It's super fiddly work but I was pretty happy with the results! (please excuse the super cluttery progress pictures)











(bonus - the gift baskets the best ones went into)

I kept the first "tester" for myself. The paint is apparently fairly dishwasher-proof and still going strong 2 years later!

So pretty!! Love the different angles of photographs, too. Helps you get a feel of how they must look in person. Nice work!
