I had some fun with vinyl dots as a resist with this one. Before glazing I stuck on dots (cut at home with my trusty vinyl cutter, of course) in a simple belt around the cup. Then I brushed on some jade glaze/stroke and coat, and after it dried, pulled off the dots to reveal the raw clay behind. I wanted to see if the glaze would drip or degrade the dots, and mostly the glaze stayed where it was. A few dots have a slump on the top curve, but otherwise this cup has a nice no-slip grip.
