Anthro Inspired Mug

I saw these mugs at anthropologie and LOVED them....the only problem...the K was ugly. BLECK! So I busted out the Porcelaine paint. If you've never used it- its so much fun! Craft stores supply it and it comes in either a pen or bottle of paint. So here was my attempt at the Anthropologie Mug


Here is their mug:
Yes, theirs is WAY cuter, because I actually have ZERO artistic abilities (seriously...feel free to look back through past posts- you'll see I never do anything that requires painting or handwriting.) BUT on the other hand, I did hand the pen to my sister so she could "doodle" on a mug, and she came up with this

So don't blame it on the paint! She is proof that it can end up being really cute! All you do is paint it on, bake it for 35 minutes at 300 degrees...and its dishwasher safe and everything!

This is such a cute idea! I've been wanting to do some porcelaine painted mugs, but this doodle inspired idea is awesome. Your mugs turned out so fun! Thanks for the inspiration!

Kitty, this is precious! I think part of the charm of these mugs is the imperfection. That's totally in right now. Love it!

I actually took a picture of those mugs with my phone at the store today so I could try to copy them somehow! I guess we must think alike!
