These are ceramic. the base is a giraffe cup without the handles and the tops are to a bird house. Put them together and viola you have wishing wells. Of course I still have to cut, paint, adhere the upright supports. It is a three step process to paint them. after the green wear is cleaned and fired I paint the base color or colors and then antique with black oil-based stain and rub off until I have the look I want. Next comes a clear top coat, either matte or gloss. The bride chose matte. There will be blue battery-powered tea lights inside surrounded by blue glass pebbles.
