My husband is not an easy man to find presents for. I asked him what he wanted last Chrismas, and the only thing he wanted was for me to paint him a couple of custom drink glasses. Hey, that I can do!

So I used my Martha Stewart Stain finish craft paints on a clean glass from Big Lots. The first glass was from Adventure Time, featurning Finn & Jake.

I’ve painted a couple of other glasses with the Adventure Time gang, I forgot to take pics of those, I’ll add them to another post later.

The second glass I did is Jebidiah Kermin from the Kerbal Space Program video game.

Well my husband really liked them, so I’m currently working on a couple more to add to our collection. When I get done with them I’ll add them as well.

Oh, the reason I use the Martha Stewart crafts paints is because they can be cured over the course of a month, or they can be baked in an oven. After the curing, the paint stays on the glass surface nicely. Some of my painted glasses I’ve had for over a year and they are holding up nicely. However I do wash them gently!

My husband has made some beautiful pots this year that I can’t take any credit for. Here is a selection of ones I found particularly pretty.


If any of these strike your fancy just drop me a line and I can list it on Etsy..

I’ve been on a bit of a Greek/Roman art kick lately. Check out some of the pieces we have made over the last few months.

The black and tan were painted with acrylics on a final fired vase that my husband threw, the black and white one was green-ware that I put a coat of black slip on and carved through. The large medallion I haven’t fired yet, it’s just a large flat pieces of clay I carved and sculpted. It should be interesting to glaze that one..
