Supplies Needed[edit | edit source]

  • White coffee mug (Note that diffrent colours of mugs and paints work well together, you can experiment - this is just a example)
  • Enamel paints: black, red, blue or pink
  • Thin pointed paint brush

Directions[edit | edit source]

  1. Be sure that coffee mug is clean and dry.
  2. Use child’s thumb and red enamel paint to add the “daddy” figure on the cup. You can make the figure larger if it looks too small.
  3. Use blue paint (or pink for a girl) and pointing finger to add the child on the cup.
  4. Use a thin paint brush to draw on legs and arms, connect arms between characters so that they are holding hands.
  5. Use thin paintbrush to add hair.
  6. Use thin paintbrush to write “Daddy” above the characters and “& me” below the characters.
  7. Bake mug in the oven as directed on the back of the enamel paint bottle. You can also air dry, however air drying requires many days as opposed to a few hours in a low temp oven.
