Rumplestiltskin's precious keepsake is a beautiful teacup that Belle accidentally chipped during one of his quips.
Here's how to make your own:
Buy a Royal Albert Bone China England Val D'or teacup in white and gold.
Buy Navy Blue acrylic paint at a local craft store. (I watered the paint down a bit to make the blue a little lighter)
Buy some paintbrushes. (I used a small round brush for the dots and branches, while I used a small flat brush for the main branch and the base)
The branch pattern is on both sides of the cup as shown here:
The tricky part is chipping the cup, which my dad did with a dremel tool after I drew the chip on the cup. He also sanded the edges.
After painting the pattern, let it dry over night, then use mod podge for the finishing coat.
It's really fun to make and looks lovely when you're finished ^_^
The perfect decor for any RumBelle fan.
