Day Twenty-One. Paint-A-Mug.
April 3, 2011 § Leave a comment
Still feeling a bit under the weather, I opted for an indoor craft activity for day twenty-one. I had some ceramic paint markers, so decided to pimp out the mug for my tea. Maybe to match my tea cozy.
I got the idea from Dollar Store Crafts, an innovative blog that gives you ideas for creating new things on the cheap. They had made some monogram mugs. I liked the single letter idea, and went a little bit more girly with silly floral doodles I’ve been making in margins since middle school.
Unfortunately, the teal colored pen kind of crapped out on me leaving the marker job resembling something from a two year-old’s coloring book. It gives it character, right?
After the paint dried, I set the ink by baking it for a half hour. Then, I drank tea.
