It had been a while since I’d painted a Gumball mug, so Brenda made it easier for me and created a version with tiger stripes for me to copy (thanks, B!) which worked really well, except for the part where I forgot to outline one tiny part with the black puffy paint. Of course that’s all I can see when I look at this mug, but oh well. Nothing a little black sharpie won’t fix!
You know that tiny unicorns are everywhere, right? Jen of The Trephine wrote a series of blog posts about finding unexpected moments of joy and delight in the world, about how if you only pay attention and keep an eye out, tiny unicorns are indeed everywhere.
See? The whole series is wonderful. (The part about tiny unicorns is in the last post, if you want to just read that one.)
I painted these Ladies of Firefly mugs with quotes from Zoe, Inara, Kaylee and River for a custom order, and I’m really pleased with how they turned out.
p.s. New summery fro-yo-shoppy banner! Thanks, Brenda.
