Maybe this has been shown before? I have seen a few blog posts & YouTube videos about these sweet little teacups.

I used book pages with gel medium to paper mache it.
With gesso & starting to paint
I don’t love the dots so I might paint over them.
Second cup - this time covered with paper towel. It will be very textured.
Three finished cups
Pale blue inside and splattered tissue outside
Repainted aqua cup with new dots - this one is flat in texture so I might add a glossy finish.
BTW - these cups serve no purpose other than decorative and I have 10 other projects to finish but you know, it keeps me off the mean streets!
