Unique fall parties: Mustache/Lips Mug Tutorial

Holiday & seasonal crafts, Painting  |  September 19th 2011  |  0 Comment
Today I’m going to show you how to make a painted coffee cup/ mug.


For this project you are going to need:
Clear con-tact paper
X-acto knife
Marker
Coffee cups {any ceramic/ glass cup will do}
Printer
Foam paintbrush
Ceramic paint {I use FolkArt brand}

First you’re going to either print or draw your picture {‘stache or lips} Now you’re going to place the image under your con-tact paper and trace the outline with your marker.

 

Next, put the con-tact paper on your cutting board and cut over the line you drew with your X-acto knife.
 Peel the inside piece out.
You’re going to take the reverse image {stencil} and center it on your mug. Make sure you put it on the opposite side you drink out of.
Take your sponge brush and dip it in the paint {a little goes a long way!}. Using dabbing motions fill in your stencil completely.

{at this point, since it was for my Aunt and Uncle, I hand painted their names and wedding date on the back of each mug.}


While the paint is still wet, peel your stencil off and let the cup dry.

 In about 30 minutes you can follow the paint manufacturer’s directions and bake your mugs.
