How-to: Make a ceramic mug (Tiki Mugs!)

Here is a direct link to my 'how-to' post.

It's way too lengthy to re-post the whole thing here... However, here's a snippet of the first step:

I will be doing a 2 step mold making process.
  1. Create a mold to make a silicon master from the original clay master
  2. Create a plaster mold using the silicon master
So, here's the not very exciting photo of the 3 items - plaster, silicon and clay. Woo Hoo!

Intro to my Blog thingo

I had entertained the idea of having a blog many times in the past but never found a good enough reason to have one. It was however, a fellow etsian and blogger herself, that had popped the idea back into my head just recently... and you know what? She was right.

I like the idea of having a blog to log my inspirations, trials and arty, crafty errors. It also reminded me of how I once posted a "how-to" in a Tiki Forum, and when reading back on it months later - was relieved to know that I could refer to it again as my memory 'aint that good ;o) So hopefully this Blog thingo can serve its purpose as my memory in a way!

Thank you Lara, and here's hoping that I remember to at least add to my newly created Blog.
