How to Stencil Mugs

Today it is all about mugs. I don’t know about you but I somehow collect way too many mugs and what happens is I never can decide which one I actually want to drink out of. I guess just like the clothes I wear I believe my coffee cup defines what kind of mood I am in or want to be in.

What? You don’t think so? Shoots, maybe I am just a nut case but at least I am a nutcase than could throw a banging coffee party. Remember my coffee party I did for Martha? You know you could always use these printables for a banging party too!

“I like light green, sometimes red is fun to look at, not a fan of yellow, unless it’s in a rainbow or on a coffee mug or on a happy face.”

How to Stencil Mugs The great thing about Martha Stewart’s stencils is the fact that they have a nice adhesive backing to them. This is good because they will not budge when you paint on them. martha stewart adhesive stencils

Start by placing them on the mugs wherever you want. Don’t worry, if you mess up you can remove them and reapply them where you want. numbered mugs diyOnce your stencil is secure squirt a little bit of glass paint inside of your stencil. how to write on glassI love using daubers because they distribute the paint nice and even through out the stencil. They also help prevent bleeds since you are apply in an up and down motion. martha stewart dauberApply one even coat and re-apply a second coat 10 minutes later. If you want a really opaque look add a third coat. how to stamp glass

Before your paint dries pull off your stencil and place it in a bowl of water.

      Ben you can use any letter stencil for these mugs. Martha has some but it’s not in this particular pack. Hope this is helpful!

      Victoria! That is actually a great starter kit! I would totally get it. The cleaner does not come with it but here is a link that you can use to order some. It’s a must to clean your stencils properly! Hope this helps xoxo jade

    Jade- this is a little different subject….I found these mugs that look like they have either sketched them or put some kind of “sticker” on them?? I cannot find out how to do this without having to buy a glass sketcher? I don’t want to buy them when I have about 8 plain mugs I would love to redo! I know it isn’t a sharpie..it is too perfect! maybe this is something you cannot help with but you seem super smart 😉 I can try and get a picture? LOL 🙂 thank you!
