As the clay dries out, it changes colour - similar to what it looks like at bisque. And that huge crack? Well that’s a good example of why wedging is so important. When clay is made and packaged, the clay particles don’t necessarily align so when they dry and shrink, they pull apart in all different directions; hence the crack. It’s pretty amazing huh?!
Y’all always crack me up whenever I post about these paint water mug sets - I always get messages about stories of when you almost took a sip of your paint water (or when you actually did! 😳😝) or when you swirled your paintbrush around in your coffee mug, only to realize it when your painting turned a shade of caramel brown ☕️🎨.
That happened to me a few too many times, which is why I created this paint water mug set! A white ceramic mug with beautiful gold foil “not my paint water” calligraphy to hold your favorite cup of coffee or tea, and a clear glass “my paint water” mug (available in pink or grey!) for your go-to paint. Sitting side-by-side on your desk, you’ll easily be able to tell the two cups apart. Disaster averted! (Unless you’re painting in shades of brown, then I’m not sure how much I can help ya 😂)
If you’re tired of coffee colored paintings and chemically sips of water, head to the link in my bio and click on The Artist Shop to grab your new favorite mug set! Your taste buds and paintings will thank you.
Now I have to know - give me a 🤦🏻♀️ below if you’ve ever used the wrong cup when painting! Trust me, there’s more of us out there than you think #painterproblems#simplyjessicamarie#sjmshop#sjmartistshop
