I picked the glazes to use.

First I painted a clear around the rim.

Then I poured it into the mug and coated all of the insides by rotating the mug three times.

Then I poured it out being careful to not have the clear run down the outside of the mug. I held it upside down for 3 minutes.

I checked to make sure it was all coated and there were no skips.

I then painted wax resist along the top edge. That way if I touch the brown glaze to this area it will wipe off and not ruin the rim. I let this dry overnight.

As I paint the top of the mug the glaze runs off of the wax resist.

Now with the mug dry I can put my hand inside to hold it while I paint on the flat brown glaze.

All done I let it dry overnight.

Now I rubbed the glaze off of the tiki.

This is a test. I expect the final to look different from this one. I will tweak until I get it right.
