I’m back from the Snap! Conference and I had the time of my life! I am hoping to have a recap post up in a few days! I am so excited to apply all the great stuff I learned to make this blog even better! I made some amazing friends in just a short amount of time and can’t wait to build a stronger community!
I have been wanting to try my hand at crafting a painted mug and I finally got a chance to do it! I haven’t tried washing these mugs in the dishwasher but they have held up great just being hand washed!
For my stripe mug I used two pieces of tape at an angle that met in the middle to create a thing stripe stencil between the two colors.
Using ceramic paint ( I used Martha Stewart’s) use a small brush to paint your stencil. Once finished and the paint is slightly dry, peel off your tape. You don’t want to wait until the paint is dry or it will peel off with the tape. Follow the directions of your paint bottle for baking and drying time.
For the polka dot mug I used a circle sponge brush to apply the turquoise dots and painted the handle.
I love how fun these mugs turned out!
