Two-Tone Dipped Mugs

Two-Tone Dipped Mugs | this heart of mine

I ordered a lovely set of two-tone dipped mugs online, a sweet Black Friday deal. After it was confirmed they were mine, I was notified they were on back-order and then eventually, I received an email to tell me the mugs were unfortunately all gone. I was bummed. But then I remembered that I make stuff and making ‘dipped’ mugs would be a cinch. Plus, I could make them exactly the colors I wanted, which, obvious from the photos, is various hues of red to berry.

If you aren’t looking to make for yourself at this time, let me assure you these mugs make a great gift item. Package them with a variety of teas and a pretty spoon or combine the mug with hot chocolate mix, marshmallows and a candy cane!

First, mark the line to which to paint to. Instead of using my ruler (and having it slide all over the place), I cut a post-it note 2-inches wide and used it as my measuring tool. The tacky back stuck in place and was easier to use than my ruler. Also, I found it easier to measure from the top down.

Remove tape before curing in the oven. Make sure to follow the manufacturer’s directions for dry time and curing time and temp. Once cured, fill with your favorite beverage and enjoy!

  3. Hello! I have a question! what is the durability of the color on the mugs? is it like the markers that as soon as you wash them a coulple of times it starts so fade?

    thank you
