The holidays call for a festive mug to drink hot cocoa! For todays project I teamed up with Aleene's and Tulip to try the drip method and create a frothy hot cocoa mug. This project is a multi-day project but the outcome is so so worth it! I love how the drip method results and can't wait to make another one!
- Stainless Steal Mug
- Aleene's Clear Casting & Coating Epoxy Resin
- Tulip Slick Dimensional Fabric Paint - White
- Red Rick Rack Trim
- Adhesive Permanent Red Sparkle Vinyl
- Aleene's Tacky Glue
- Tumbler Spinner
- Heat Gun
- Popsicle Stick
- Plastic Cups
- Safety Gear
- Peppermint Sprinkles
- Electrical or Resin Tape
- Remove the lid from the mug.
- Cut a piece of adhesive vinyl to fit the mug and adhere it.
- Apply the vinyl decal saying.
- Use the Tulip Slick Dimensional Fabric Paint to create a frothy marshmallow drip around the top edge of the cup. Be careful to not get it inside the mug.
- Add peppermint sprinkles and glitter while it is still wet.
- Let the paint dry over night.
- I didn't like how the vinyl was laying at the bottom edge of the mug so I used my tacky glue to add rick rack trim along the bottom edge.
- Cover the handle and inside of the mug with tape.
- Put on gloves and a mask.
- Mix the Aleene's Clear Casting & Coating Epoxy Resin according to the instructions. Make sure to follow the instructions and read the safety recommendations.
- Put the mug on the tumbler spinner and make sure it is level.
- Start the tumbler spinning slowly.
- Slowly pour the epoxy resin on the tumbler and use a gloved finger to rub the epoxy evenly over the mug.
- Glide the heat gun above the mug as it turns to eliminate bubbles.
- Let the mug spin for at least 12 hours.
- Once the epoxy resin is cured remove the mug from the tumbler. Remove all the tape and wash the tumbler before using.
Can you imagine sipping hot cocoa from this festive mug and sitting by a crackling fine? Happy Holidays friends!
