Day 258: Mustache Mug #1 – A #PinAddicts Post

on September 14, 2012

This is my 1st link up with the #PinAddicts I heard about this group of bloggers at the beginning of September over on Twitter. The premise is to make or do something that you have pinned over on the site @Pinterest.

This is a tentative step into a how to type post so please bare with me…

So I’ve been looking at these moustache covered items for a while, starting with the head on the Pringles tube. So when these little beauties popped up I had to have a go. First I saw this one then I saw this variation on a theme.

Out I went and got a sharpie, found some moustache templates online and dug a plain mug out of my plentiful mug cupboard.

Image

So you start with 1 naked mug, 1 sharpie of whichever colour you prefer and a cut out template (unless you have a very steady hand – which I don’t). I stuck mine down with some sticky tape.

Image

Carefully draw the tache’s outline then fill in.

Remove the stencil, and put in a pre-heated oven (350f, 200c) for 30 mins to fix the design.

At this point the mug looked amazing.

Image

So I thought I would test the dishwasher hardiness of the design.

After all, the sharpie post said it was dishwasher safe. Alas, this bit wasn’t true. So I don’t know whether or not it was due to UK sharpie ingredients or something else, I was rather disappointed at the final result.

Image

This won’t stop me though, I am determined to get this craft right. So now I have some Porcelain Pens on order and will update with a Mustache Mug #’2 in the future.

Today’s Activity: Settling down with some tv and a takeaway.
