Hand-painted plastic cup

There are two pieces of this type of cup so I had to make it different in some way. These alcoholic felt pens don't stand the diswhasher and sponge, so this one's painted with acrylics and varnished. Adding black wash to the relevant parts was an outright struggle as it kept flowing around the curved surface. After the finish, I drank a beer from it and the extra work certainly gave some extra taste.

House of Glutemarknog resides in an imaginary Sweden. Their coat of arms is a knight fighting a brown bear standing on two legs in a wood, with the words 'Against the Beasts Forever - Grafs of Glutemarknog' (if the Latin is wrong, blame it on that certain Imagi-world).
