Painted Coffee Mug for Dad
Designed by Amanda Formaro
Painting on a coffee cup is just as easy as painting on a piece of paper or wood. Use this simple yet cute design for your Father's Day coffee mug, or create your very own! The possibilities are endless.
You will need
white coffee mug
enamel paints in red, black and silver
What you do
Wash and dry mug completely.
Paint design on coffee mug. We didn't use a pattern, simply freehand an oval for the fish and add a tail and fins, then dot the eye with the end of the paintbrush with black paint.
Paint "dad" with red, and use black to paint a design around the rim and bottom of the cup.
Air dry for one hour. Place in cool, oven, heat to 350 F, and bake for 30 minutes. Turn oven off and let cool down completely. Remove from oven.
Wash on top dishwasher rack or by hand.
