Decorate the cup

How nice to drink your favorite drink from a beautiful and original cup. And at home it is not at all difficult to decorate any monophonic cup. All work takes one hour. That is, at any free time you can sit back and decorate the cup. We need:
  • A cup without a pattern.
  • Napkin for decoupage.
  • Acrylic paints of different colors.
  • White contour for ceramics or universal.
  • PVA glue.
  • Scissors.
  • Varnish for ceramics or any decorative art.
  • Empty waste cup or lid.
  • A medium-sized brush and another small thin brush.
  • Cotton wool.
  • Alcohol or any degreasing agent.
  • F n.
 To work we need
First you need to process the whole cup with a degreasing agent in order to remove all divorces on her. We take a spray on a cup or cotton wool with alcohol and wipe the entire cup.Now, you need to take a cup carefully, so as not to leave fingerprints on it.

Next we take a napkin with a favorite pattern and scissors cut out fragments of the picture. The napkin consists of three parts and we need to remove two unnecessary layers and leave only the last layer with the printed pattern.

In an empty glass pour a little glue of PVA and dilute it with plain water. Water needs quite a bit. We will glue our napkin on this line.
 pour a little glue
Place a napkin on the cup and, starting from the center, glue a napkin on a small piece. The brush should be well moistened with glue. And when we carry the brush, we try not to rub it several times in one place, and then the napkin is very thin and can tear.
 place a napkin
Take a hairdryer and begin to dry the cup. PVA glue dries literally five minutes.When the glue dries the cloth becomes dull and it needs to be given brightness and color. For this, I took acrylic paints and started painting over bullfinches and spruce branches. After painting also dry the cup with a hairdryer.

Now I have taken the outline of the white color and have divided the hooks and the dots in random order. Since my cup is red and the bullfinch is also of the same color, I needed some kind of decoration between the colors and, as it seemed to me, the white color fit perfectly. If you have a white cup, then you will not need any finishing.

The contour also dried it with a hairdryer. Now I took a varnish for decorative art and painted the whole picture in two layers. Each layer was pre-dried with a hairdryer. During the opening of the cup with lacquer we try not to get out of the edges of the picture, but also to paint it completely. The quality of the varnish will depend on how long your drawing on the cup will last. If the picture is well coated with varnish, the picture will not be washed off.
