Right before christmas my friend Andrea and I went to this ceramic painting studio we wanted to try out for ages. The price of the mug, plate, etc. you choose includes all the materials you are going to use, the final glaze and burning in the kiln.
I wanted to keep it pretty neutral in black and white and brought some stamps with me as I was curious how it would turn out.
Stamping on ceramics...not as easy as I thought. The glaze isn't really smooth and kept clogging the small parts of the stamps. I had to wash it off a million times. Andrea finished painting her mugs top to bottom in every color of the rainbow while I was still busy stamping two short words... But it was so much fun!
Our names are a bit uneven, but it adds to the charm (hey, I have to say that!)...
I had to mount my stamp (a tattoo stamp - as in "temporary tattoo you stamp on you skin" - I bought ages ago...why, you ask? No idea...I can't really imagine stamping myself with roses or hearts...or anything else for that matter...) on a painters brush with double sided tape to reach the bottom.
The names are a bit wonky, but overall I like how they turned out. ...and they hold huuuuge amounts of coffee!
