Calavera Corona 3 Ounce Shots
These shot glasses are each individually hand painted. The paint is then fired to the glass to make for a functional piece of artwork that can withstand some abuse. I don’t recommend putting them in the dish washer, the new high heat drying cycles can really be detrimental to the paint, but a regular hand washing will do no harm. Please don’t use any thing abrasive on the artwork.
I tell people that each one is unique, and I believe that is true. You will find many of the shots with green, or pink borders, and the faces may have similar features, but each and every skull is individually hand painted, and I doubt that you will find any two with exactly the same appearance. Each expression is created in the moment and some people say they tell what mood I was in by the look of the skull.
Each glass is cleaned thoroughly, I use Simple Green and a sponge. I then wash my hands to make sure not to get any dirt or oil on the glass. The paint won’t adhere to a dirty or oily surface. The first thing I do is the basic outline of the design. The design I am using on this shot is my Calavera Corona. It features a skull surrounded by a burst of bright color. After the black outline is dry, I then add the base white of the skull and then add the color that surrounds the skull. This is left to dry. Once the skull and outer layer are dry I add the finishing touches to the skull and the golden dots to the color burst. Then I sign each and every one of the glasses. The shot is left to cure for 24 to 48 hours and then fired to set the paint. I prefer to wait at least 48 hours to make sure the paint is completely dry.
Each piece is signed by the artist (me!) on the back of the glass.
Each shot measures 2.625 inches tall and 2 inches wide at the top and base. They have a durable and chip resistant rim. These shots hold 3 ounces and each one is made in the USA.
These make excellent shot glasses, but can also be used as a jigger to measure out cocktails, as tea light candle holders, toothpick holders, dessert samplers. A set would make an excellent wedding gift. They can also be used as groomsmen gifts and they can be personalized on the back of the glass – please add at least 2 weeks for personalization, please keep in mind there is limited space for personalization.
