GIU Day 4



Good Morning!
Today I bring you a project that was really fun and actually was a little harder to do then I had thought.  I stamped an image on a mug that I purchased at the local dollar store.  I used jet black StazOn ink.  The mug was not round but has 4 flat sides but they are a little wonky.  I’ll admit it took three tries to get the image.  The nice thing is that baby wipes took the image off and I could try again.  Once I completed the image, I set the oven to 300 degrees and stuck the mug on a pan for 30 minutes.  I put the mug right in the oven while it heated up.  Once it completely cooled, I sealed it using 2 coats of Dishwasher Safe Mod Podge.  The directions say to let it cure for 28 days.  I think the green and brown give it nice character.




Please comment below and let me know what you think!  There will be 2 random winners picked from the comments on my blog for the week to win 25 stamps from Unity!  Come back tomorrow and see what fun project I will share!
