So now that I've been practicing my hand lettering for a while and becoming more confident in my abilities, I decided to try something new. I found a few plain ceramic mugs at a good price, I thought "oh, what the heck..." bought some ceramic markers* and came home eager to try my lettering on a new medium. Part of me was a little nervous about possibly ruining a perfectly plain coffee mug, but I figured #1) it wasn't a huge investment, and #2) I can always use them as planters or donate them to Angel View.
Well, to my surprise, I really like they way they turned out! I especially love the metallic inks, they really add a nice accent to my designs. Above is one of the cups I've decorated. I think this one might become my daily companion at the office. Don't be surprised if you start seeing a few of these in my Etsy shop or website. Once I get started on something, it's hard to stop, and I don't have enough cabinet space to store them all!
Pens used: Uchida Decocolor Fine Point Paint Markers*
