I like these ceramic coffee mugs with the nice soft rubber tops so when I espied one for 50 cents at the thrift I grabbed it right away. I’ve been dying to try out the Martha Stewart All Surface Paints I purchased with my “fun money” which I got for Christmas. I figured this would be the perfect item to try them out on. These paints are supposed to work on a variety of surfaces, glass included.
I had all sorts of pretty ideas in my head until my Mr noticed the cup and was oooh-la-ing over it. I decided then and there I would make it over for HIM. (I try to do one unique special thing for him every day)
My man is musical so I chose this Electric Guitar file which I purchased from the Silhouette America Online Store. I cut the shape using Silhouette Vinyl. I then transferred the bits I wanted to the cup and then painted the various layers in stages.
One side has the guitar upside down…
The other opposite. I also sprayed the OUTSIDE of the cup with Krylon Triple Thick Clear Glaze and it looks fantastic!
Stay tuned for my next DIY!Blogger Labels: Coffee,tops,thrift,Martha,Stewart,Surface,Paints,money,Christmas,item,glass,ideas,Electric,Guitar,Silhouette,America,Online,Vinyl,upside,OUTSIDE,Krylon,Triple,Thick,Clear,Glaze,Stay,layers
