How to Paint a Marvelous Mug:
Here is what you need to paint these marvelous mugs:
There is an all purpose glitter paint by Martha Stewart. Americana does have a glitter one, but Hobby Lobby was out. I bought this one at JoAnn's Fabrics.
As for the mugs, I have purchased them at our Dollar Store; however, they haven't been carrying them lately...no wine glasses either. However, I found some nice sized ones with a nice "deign" for painting at Walmart.
Step 1: Wash the mugs well. I use Dawn soap to rid the mugs of any grease and dirt from the store.
Step 2: Rub the entire mug with a cotton ball dipped in rubbing alcohol. Air dry for a few minutes. I frequently use my old hair dryer - I'm not very patient!
Step 3: Paint! The pouncers work wonderfully and leave a nice textured finish.
Step 4: Air dry for 48 hours.
Step 5: Place mugs on a cookie sheet in a cool oven. Set to 325 degrees for 30-45 minutes. Shut oven off, and let them cool in the oven.
Step 6: Enjoy! They are dishwasher safe, but I prefer to hand wash. My dishwasher is a little aggressive...
