Hi design readers! For today's post I'm going to show you one of my favorite DIY projects. I love when I can create something at home that looks like it was purchased in one of those fancy specialty stores. Well this next project is just that. You'd never know I made this with just some craft paint and a mug I bought for about $4. You'd almost think I got out the clay, potter's wheel and fired up a 2000° kiln -Ghost style! If you want to learn how to make this awesome personalized "dipped" mug keep reading and I'll show you exactly what to do.
- Spray paint system (I recommend Preval* or Martha Stewart Crafts)
- Martha Stewart Crafts paint in beach glass
- Ceramic white mug (mug show from Target stores)
- Painter's tape
- Thickers alphabet stickers
Using painter's tape mask off all areas to not be painted. I angled my tape starting 1/3 from bottom to half way up. I left the handle clear as I wanted it entirely painted.
Next apply the stickers where you want to create a 'mask' that won't get painted. You may want to spell out a name or just a monogram.
cured in the oven or air cured for 21 days.**

**As I am writing this post it's almost been one year since I made this mug. (Wow how the time flies!) Anyway, I can definitely testify to the durability of this paint. I actually use this exact mug on a regular basis. The paint has held up very well with all but one very tiny spot of paint rubbing off. This post is completely non-sponsored and all opinions are mine.
