i think you can get there from here
then for the handle--make the tea cup handle with 'handles' on it
don't make a handle then figure out how to attach it
worry about it falling off
make a handle with additional extra long arms already built in onto it
all in one piece
maybe even reinforced with dry spaghetti noodles or skewers
so that when it's implanted into the side of the tea cup it is already perfectly secure
make sense? i hope
I made a giant coffee cup for my dad a couple of Father's Days ago. (It says Hey Hey because that's how my dad used to greet everyone!)
I started with the bottom of the giant cupcake pan. For height you can add a small round layer on the bottom. I made the edge of the cup with RKT (hence the very wobbly look!!) and the handle is RKT too. I used the pudding from a pudding cup that was a good coffee color for the coffee.
i wanted to just post the link but I couldn't figure out where it was in the new format!!
(holding my breath that you didn't wake up to a mess--don't say/think the 'm' word! ;)
it's tremendously awesome all by itself
then it is the clever little paws that totally take it over the top
makes it brilliantly believable
