A Cupful of Christmas

I have really been enjoying creating my Nativity Platter and was wanting to use my stamps for some other items as well.  Sets of mugs were next to create.  I wanted to have mugs in sets of four, with each mug showing a different image from the nativity scene.  I am really happy with how these turned out and I think they are pretty unique.

These mugs will actually not be glazed in a crystalline glaze.  I am planning on glazing the insides and rims of the mugs only, in a non-crystalline glaze.  Maybe a rustic red.  The outside of the mugs will be stained in red iron oxide.  This will allow for the impressions of the stamps to remain dark with a rusty stain on the rest of the pot.  I think it will have a nice effect against the red glaze.  After all, the nativity scene was a rather “rustic” event.  There was no room in the Plaza, just the barn out back.  I hope to have several sets for sale in the next month or two – by Thanksgiving for sure!
