This is a set of 2 mugs, (made at world market, but handpainted by yours truly) both matching, painted with black and pink ceramic paint. They hold about 12 oz of fluid, which is a nice size for your morning coffee or tea! They should be pretty durable, but I'd advise washing only by hand in warm water. I put a lot of love into these mugs and I kinda wish I could keep them xD Shame.

So pretty! Can I ask you how you painted them? I'm interested in painting my own teacups (but I want the decoration to be on the inside), but don't know how to go about it. Do you paint on top of the finish that's already on the cup?
>.< Sorry! >.< I was just asking because usually when using ceramic stain on something, once you've completed it you either spray on a sealer, which wouldn't be good for this type of piece since you'll be drinking from it, or you brush on a sealer. Really all it does is protect the stain's color as well as brighten it, but do you mind if I ask my ceramics teacher if you'd still be fine without it? I just worry about your beautiful work coming off or fading, that's all! *major sweatdrop*
