Good Morning!

Today's Creative Paperclay ® mug project was inspired by the artistry of Ed Hardy.

1. Clean off the coffee mug with a cotton ball dipped in alcohol. Let it dry.

3. Paint the mug and handle with chalk paint. Remove the tape and let dry.

4. Roll out a clay sheet then push the rubber stamp into the clay.

 5. Cut around the impression.

6. Lay the clay piece over the mug and put in a 175 degree oven for 45 min or until clay turns white and is dry.

7. When cool take the clay off the mug.
8. Sand and then wipe your clay piece down to remove any clay dust.
9. Paint the clay piece and let dry.

9. Seal the all sides of the clay with dishwasher safe decoupage.

I hope this tutorial inspired you to create yourself a coffee mug embellishment.
