mug shots with Skinny laMinx


Hello everyone! Last week I jumped at the chance to participate in a creative workshop with the lovely Heather Moore in her cosy Skinny laMinx studio. Heather provided plain white ceramic mugs, scissors & a selection of her Skinny transfer-printed designs in pretty colours. Then she instructed us cut, soak & stick to our heart’s content, creating our very own unique patterns on the mugs.


The process was super simple… just choose the elements you fancy, cut them out and soak for a short time in water…


then apply the motif to the mug and press out any excess water, taking care not to move the transfer around too much. Heather will soon take our mugs to be fired in a kiln, after which they’ll ready for their first teabag. Because tea always tastes better in a mug, right?


The Skinny laMinx studio is lovely to work in. Heather draws inspiration from her surroundings and these gorgeous books and vintage Scandi fabrics are the perfect creative catalyst for her prints.

    What type of paper used? It uses a regular printer to print these images?
    I've never seen anything like this before …

      Hello… it seems to be a thicker paper with a shiny side which is printed by a specialist printer. Perhaps google 'transfer printing' for a clearer understanding…
      thank you for visiting!
