    Eh! Grotbag, they are really something, well done! Or rather, well done to your wife!
     That sort of work takes a heck of a lot of time and patience...never mind a steady hand. 'Home-made'....love it. Best of luck and keep us informed of how it goes.

    They look really  good - I would say that your website doesn't do them justice though and do prices start from £5 or £10?

    How about a beer glass with an allotmenteer on it my go down well on this forum!

    How do they need to be washed? Very carefully?

    they are baked, so can be washed,(we've had some about 4 years and still going strong. The manufacturer of the paints do say that they can be dish-washered ( it that a word?) but we've found that it wears off after a few months, so I definately recomend hand washing
