The Owl mug

In the past few months I saw many pins on pinterest about plain mugs painted with Sharpie.

I loved the way some mugs have come out!

1. The style of this one is very simple and delicate! I love the spots on the handle.

2. These two mugs are fantastic!!
It is a very original and personal idea: well done to Elsie ;)  Now, if I had to follow this idea, both mugs would be about coffee..no green tea in my house!

3. This mug is beatiful! My first thought was "the person who made this has a lot of patience!" I couldn't be that good!

After so much inspiration I decided to create my own personal mug!

I bought this mug for 35p:


You see "The baking book"? mmmmh :) I can't wait to start working on it!

Back to the mug:

I have realized I didn't have any owl themed mug (!!) so I had to create one.  I'm not going to write a step by step process since you can find it everywhere;)

This is the final result after the mug cooled down (remember you have to bake it at 350F/200°C):


There's more.....
Ta-chaa

Do you like my two love owls?

Until next time,
Daniela
