Helping a mouse in need

When it comes to illustrations , there is nothing like little mice. I just love them.*grin*
I have been working with winter illustrations and I plan to show it to you sometime.*grin*

Any one that knows me for the past 8 years , knows how much I love little mouse and how many have been subject for my sculptures , specially in wool. Couple years ago I did a little bird helping a mouse in need and this time I have a kind mouse helping a *frozen* vagabond.
I then had my painting turned into decal. This was not an easy find. I knew a company that made them but it was not good quality , however I found one that I truly liked it.
Once the decal was made, I transferred to the porcelain teapot and fired in my kiln. The decal is permanent. I love the results and now I am excited to make more!!!
Do you care for some tea?

O.K., now, you know how I feel about mice....this is absolutely wonderful and so magical, and to think that you can transfer your images onto a pot....you have skills that are so precious beyond my reach, at least, for now!!!! I still have to perfect, at least to my liking, the watercolors!!! Enjoy this lovely day dear Tita, Nita

Oh Neat! These must be the decals you told me about earlier. I love the look of it upon the pot. I hope to get around to trying these with my rabbit illustrations.
