Calligraphy on a cup!

These photos show the steps I used to create this cup for my ‘secret pal’ in my Guild. I used Sharpie oil based pens in primary colors to stipple around the letters and inside the image of the pen. After it dried I carefully removed the paper and then baked the cup at 350 for 30-45 min.

It’s Craft Show Season

I spent the past two weekends at Craft Shows lettering names, etc. on Christmas ornaments.
All my ornaments are glass. I letter, or add artwork, according to what the person would like on their ornament.  It’s a huge show, so after they peruse the many booths, they return and I have their item ready to go. Below are samples of ones I created this past weekend.  Feel free to contact me to create one for you!

Craft Show

I bought paint pens in broad and fine point, some of them being glitter pens! I will have examples and offer to letter names on the ornaments in calligraphy.
