Hey Everyone! Today we’re also going to making a Chalkboard Mug which would make an excellent gift for V-Day! This is really easy and simple to make so lets get started!
You’re going to need:
Non Sanded Grout
Latex paint (preferably the glass paint kind)
A disposable cup and something to mix with
Tape off the mug all the way around (keep as straight as possible). I suggest the bottom portion because human’s lips meet the top of the mug
Tape off the handle also
Sand the portion you will be painting so it sticks better to the mug
Let’s mix some paint and grout. The ratio of paint to grout is 8:1 so for every cup of paint mix one tbsp of grout. Mix until well blended (no clumps)
Paint as smoothly as possible. Let the first coat dry for one hour and start another coat with fresh paint//grout
Peel off very carefully
Once the 2nd coat has dried for ten hours, apply some chalk to the paint. Rub with a paper towel afterwards
These are so easy to make and come out pretty cool! If you decide to try this (maybe another base paint?), tweet me an image at @ihascupquake
Thanks for watching!
