New Purpose

Gilding supplies I ordered arrived last week. First thing I did was to make a batch of shell gold.

 I poured off the contents into this little tea cup to dry. The cup was just sitting in the curio cabinet. A souvenir from a trip to the United Nations many, many moons ago. A pretty cup, but not large enough for a decent cup of tea. Now, the cup has a new purpose.

 Perfect for holding the shell gold. The saucer can act as a lid to keep the dust and Ink out.

  1. Perfect! What a great new life for an 'old' cup and saucer. :)
