As I have been painting mugs for a while, (my shop is open, there's not many products on there but please do take a look! Click on 'mug shop' on the side bar!) it seemed obvious to create my own version of the traditional style. Rather than just buying one.
Here's what you'll Need:
- Washi tape (any colour, purely for masking out your areas).
- A plain white mug.
- Cornish blue toned ceramic paint.
- A paintbrush.
- I also used a ceramic paint outliner but found I didn't really need it! The purpose of outliners is to give you a guide to fill areas in. But the washi tape kind of does that for you!
Let dry completely overnight/24 hours. Then bake in the oven 180 degrees C for fan, 200 degrees C for conventional. Bake for about 35 mins. Make sure you put it in a COLD oven and don't pre-heat! Equally, when the timer dings, turn the oven off and don't open the door for a good half hour afterwards. The extreme change in temperature could cause the mug to crack!
