Tea Pot WIP

Painted Silver Tea Services

The hunt for these little tea pots is almost as much fun as painting them. My daughter was horrified that I would even consider painting a tea service. I think she was afraid I would find and then cover a "Paul Raver" tea set with enamel paint. So she made me look up the hallmarks of all the sets I have. (just to be safe, her words) It is a good idea. It was also very interesting. Well, long story short...I have no "Paul Raver" tea services preped to paint.

So here is another one, it's almost finished, but still a work in progress! There are just a tea pot and a pot without a lid in this set... but unusual silver work. They are silver plated not full silver of course, but so much fun to paint. I will be putting these up for sale soon, on my Etsy shop!

I am finished, I have signed it and put a beautiful glaze on it. I can't wash it for 10 days but after's dish washer safe. This was fun...I think I'll make some more...I have a dragon and a prediter to finish too. If I had been triplets I would be done by now!

Turq & Purp Tea Service...

It's almost a sin...

I was wandering around the web one day and I discovered that you can paint a silver tea service with enamel, I had to try it. This is a blast. It's not quite finished but when it is I think I try and sell it! This has kept me very busy this holiday!
