Hiii…how are you? Me again with another little Christmas craft. You might have noticed that gingerbread houses and gingerbread everything is
the ‘it’ theme this year. Well, I wanted to make a similar mug like the Viral Gingerbread House Christmas Mug. I’m in love with it.
Here is the first version that I tried.
The mugs are from the Dollar Store.
I started by outlining the shape with the ceramic pen. I then mixed some pink and white to make a very light pink and filled in the house and the trees.
I needed a couple of coats and it doesn’t have to be perfect because we’re going to fill it with relief paint later.
NOTE: Allow the layers to dry in between.
Place the relief paint to resemble frosting and allow to dry and cure according to package instructions.
This was my first go and though it’s cute, I wanted to try it again with a white mug which is a lot easier to find at the Dollar Store.
NOTE: This particular one I will be using as decor only so I won’t be curing it.
I started with a white mug and used a mixture of beige, brown and white to coat the bottom of the mug. I left the top unpainted.
Even though the paint is non toxic, it’s not food safe and therefore, it’s better not to bring it all the way to the top unless you’re using it as decor.
I love the white so much more than the first one.
