My friend Anne and I have an ‘Usy Klub’. Which is just another way of saying we have a moustache club, only in Russian. I kind of forgot why we used Russian. I have no Russian connections, well, not counting my Russian housemate, and I only know 3 Russian words: ‘usi’, ‘klub’ and ‘da’. I guess it just sounds funny.
Anyway, that was not so much the point. The point was that it was Anne’s birthday Saturday, and I decided to make her a teapot. You know, for our moustache club meetings. She actually made me moustache cups for my birthday as well, but it would be really sweet if we could just drink from moustache cups everywhere we go, not only at my place.
I used a ceramic marker and ceramic paint. The caption ‘voor (stoere) meisjes’ translates as ‘for (tough) girls’. That’s not Russian though, that’s just Dutch (remember? The thing I speak everyday).
Have you ever painted ceramics before?
