Instructions

  1. Using stencil tape, mask off a triangle on your mug.
  2. Using a basic flat brush and a paint color of your choice, paint your mug. Let dry completely and paint another coat as necessary. 
  3. Once fully dry, be sure to score and release with a craft knife before removing the tape from your surface. 
  4. Repeat the above steps to create "trees" all around the mug. 
  5. Next, take your detail brush and use Sterling paint to add dotted details.
