DIY Painted Ceramic Mugs with Martha Stewart Glass Paint and Stencils



I'm so excited to share this fun project today. I painted these ceramic mugs with supplies from the new Martha Stewart Glass Paint line. I was thrilled to have the opportunity to test drive some of the new products last month, and I had a million ideas for projects. But when I opened the letter stencils and saw all the punctuation, I was immediately inspired to make these sweet little emoticon coffee cups. Grab one, and let your coworkers or family know what kind of mood you are in that morning.  



Here is a peek at some of the fun products in the line. The paints work on glass or ceramic, and the accessories include a big variety of stencils and silk screen prints. Of course, everything is gorgeous and tasteful, like all Martha products!

Supplies for this project: 

Ceramic Coffee Cups
Martha Stewart Crafts Glass Paint in Opaque Finish
Martha Stewart Crafts Adhesive Stencils
Martha Stewart Glass Paint Stenciling Tools
Soap and Water
Rubbing Alcohol

Step One: Grab a glass or ceramic surface. I found these big mugs on clearance at Target. Wash them well with hot soapy water, then prep surface by cleaning with alcohol to make sure there are no residues from soap or stickers. This is very important because the paint needs a clean surface to adhere properly. 



Step Two: Organize the supplies. I used the letter stencils, the smallest pouncer and dauber in the tool kit, and the Glass paint in Glossy Opaque and Metallic Opaque. 



Step Three: I placed the adhesive stencils on the clean dry cup. You only need a tiny bit of paint, so I squeezed some out onto a paper plate. Initially, I used the foam pouncer shown in the picture, but then switched to the small dauber tool also included in the package. It has a firmer spongy texture that gave me better control on the small surface. 


Step Four: Pick up a small amount of paint on the dauber and off-load the excess onto a paper towel. Carefully apply the paint with a light tapping motion until the stencil is filled in. 


Step Five: Carefully remove the stencil while the paint is still wet. Since I was taking pictures as I worked and the paint dries so quickly, a little bit of the edge of the nose lifted up. I touched it up with one of the very small paint brushes in the Martha Stewart line. Wash the stencil while the paint is still wet and return it to the backing sheet. 


Step Six: Make as many emoticon friends as you want! The gold one is for the mornings you are feeling a little sassy, and the red one is for those meh mornings, before you have had your coffee. 





Step Seven: Allow the paint to cure by letting it air dry for 21 days, or, to cure quickly, bake the item in an oven. To cure in an oven, place the glass or ceramic item in a cold oven, then set it to 350 degrees. Turn the oven off after 30 minutes and let the item cool in the oven. Wait 72 hours before using. They do not recommend oven curing the glitter paints. 





Once they are fully cured, they are top rack dishwasher safe. You can use these fun little guys every morning! So which one fits your morning personality?

So there's hardly any compatibility problem, but the bellsouth.net email login is another thing that needs to be resolved. In comparison, Bellsouth provides its services worldwide. So considering this point, when faced with a large number of users, you can imagine how a minor problem turns big. Bellsouth is getting difficult as all of its facilities are online.

Good Bellsouth services include advertisement, printing, telecommunication, telephone, TV devices such as cable, etc.
