DIY Watercolour Mug

I love the effect of watercolour, and while I love finding a beautiful cushion, painting or poster with a kaleidoscope of color, I, like Caitlin of The Merrythought, have been trying to come up with a few ways to add a hint of faux watercolour around the house. After seeing her cousin give herself a “watercolour” manicure, Caitlin came up with this extremely effective and easy (not to mention gorgeous!) DIY of a watercolour mug. Read on to see how.

What you need:

• White Ceramic Mug

• Old or Disposable Bowl/Container

• Nail Polish (in colour of your choice)

Instructions

• Fill the bowl with warm water.

• Add a drop of nail polish to the water and let it spread out. You can also use a skewer to swirl the color around a bit to give it the effect you’d like.

• Dip your mug in the water.

• You can use nail polish remover to remove any excess nail polish on the bottom and inside of the mug or sections that got messed up.

• Carefully pat mug dry with paper towel.

• You can repeat with additional colors if you want.

• Once you’ve achieved the look you want, let it sit for at least two hours.

I would recommend hand washing these mugs. Durability will also depend on quality of the nail polish - just as it would on your nails. If you run into problems, try coating the outside with a clear coat of nail polish or a non toxic finishing spray.

What colors would you use? Would you give this a try?
