How to do it

Part 1

Step 1

Select a monogram, and adhere the stencil in the top half area of the mug. (Tip: Leave at least 1 inch of space clear from the top edge of the mug.)

Step 4

Spoon the Pesto paint mixture onto the mug covering the lower area, under the stenciled letters. Drizzle some of the Wedding Cake paint mixture and move the mug around to make the paint move to achieve the marbling effect. Drizzle some of the Pea Shoot paint mixture and move the mug to cover; let dry completely. (Note: The mixture will run off onto the covered surface.)

Step 5

Repeat steps 1–4 for the other mug using the Slate Gray, Summer Haze, and Wedding Cake paints.
