Hand painted ceramics – custom order and a new design

Custom custom! My “Wild flower” and “Humming buttons” designs on tea light candle holders.
I just sold the “Poppy sea” tea light holders at my recent craft fair. Now I have been asked to paint custom designs of “Wild flowers” and “Humming buttons” on the tea light holders. Well….I love these little items, so I have done it! 😀 These tea light holders are fine bone china with a warm white colour base. Although it’s difficult to tell from the photos, I felt a different atmosphere when I was painting these, as opposed to working with my usual porcelain products. I should make more of these and stock them on my shop I think, as they’re really lovely.
Here is my new design that I painted ‘live’ at the craft fair a few weeks ago. I was initially concerned that I didn’t have enough products to fill my stall, so I started painting an extra mug there and then! But I’m still wondering if I should use more colours or keep it simple.
This jug is gonna be a Christmas pressie for a lovely couple, I just finished drawing it today.
Ok, my Mr and me are off to Devon on this weekend! We are staying there for a week…hope the weather will be better…it’s been a frenzy of very very wet weather in England recently. However, I’m looking forward to walking in Dartmoor!
