At Work with Glitter & Bold







Brittany Morgan from Glitter and Bold gives some insight into her process and what goes into making her handmade items:

"Designs come to me in fits and spurts, taking anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours to get things just the way I want them. From there, I use two coats of quality porcelain paint and a teeny tiny brush (seriously, check out the picture!), taking roughly 30 minutes to an hour per mug, depending on the detail of the design and colors used. After 24 hours, I bake the mugs in a conventional (read: my kitchen) oven and leave them to cool for several hours. Add some tissue paper, a fun tag and bakers twine, and a whole lot of packing peanuts and they're ready to go!"
