I promised to show you my finished teaspoon stand from when we went mug painting. It was awhile ago but it had to be refired and then I started a mug with a similar design so thought I'd show you them together.
Here's before firing:
And after. The colours become really vivid.
I'm not as pleased with the mug, the shading wasn't dark enough so it doesn't have that 3D effect. If I do it again it will definitely have 3 coats of the grey.
The mug is a Christmas present for a friend and the handle says "Hot and Dark", which is what he calls bad coffee.
