artemesia teacup

By Renee Parker | Add comment Add a comment


This papier mache teacup was inspired by the memory of my grandmother's collection of odd, but beautiful teacups. Built up over a balloon, then released, sanded, and painted with acrylic paints. I intentionally sanded some of the painted finish around the lip to expose the newprint underneath and create a rustic feel. Lastly, the inside was finished with a high gloss finish to emulate the look of fired porcelain. Such fun to create!
