Gold Mugs

SUPPLIES & TOOLS:

  • Ceramic coffee mugs – different shapes (3)
  • Painter's tape
  • Gold spray paint
  • Gold ceramic marker
  • Silicone “Cup of Cheer” stencil
  • Silicone stencil - snowflakes or decorative shapes
  • Cotton swabs

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Make sure coffee mugs are clean and dry.
  2. Stenciled Mug- Place the stencils in the desired location around the coffee mugs. Make sure to press firmly.
  3. Fill in the stencil with the ceramic markers. Lift off the stencil immediately.
  4. Wipe any excess marker runs from under the stencil with a cotton swab or pointed wooden stick. They will come off easily.
  5. Paint the decorative lines around the bottom of the mug with the gold ceramic marker
  6. Monogram Mug- Using the gold ceramic marker, draw an initial in the middle of the cup. Choose a letter and font style on a computer. Use the ceramic marker freehand to create dots and stripes.
  7. Gold Striped Mug- Using the painter's tape, mask out the desired lines. The exposed areas will be the sections that will be painted with spray paint. After the lines that are to be gold have been masked out, cover the rest of the cup in painter's tape. Use the X-Acto® knife to cut straight lines.
  8. In a well-ventilated area, spray paint the entire mug, focusing on the exposed area. 2-3 light coats of paint will be needed. Allow to dry thoroughly. Remove the painter's tape.
