Congrats on your new baby! You're probably wondering what is the best way to take care of your BabyFace Mug... well you've come to the right page! It is important to recognize that every artist is different and the care instructions for one potter may be different from another potter.
Material and Surface
Look how cute this zit baby is!
So, each one of my babies is made from speckled stoneware, white stoneware, or porcelain, but regardless they all have a matte exterior finish. I love the look of matte glazes especially for the babies faces. The interior is always a glossy or matte glaze. The bottom of the mug is also always finished with a matte underglaze.
Recently, I started to coat the matte exteriors in Liquid Quartz! This is microwave, dishwasher, and food safe! It was just what I was looking for. This sealer makes the exterior waterproof, stain proof, scratch resistant, and prevents the surface from fading in color. This adds another layer of protection to my mugs. When water hits the surface it will simply bead off.
