Creating a Sketch Before you start work on decorating ourcups, you need to prepare all the materials for work. To do this, you need to recreate the future drawing in the form of a sketch. We execute it on special paper of dense type, so that later we can form a template. For those who do not want to create a drawing on their own - there is the possibility of buying a decoupage card. Otherwise, you can do with a napkin, as well as pulling out the necessary design elements for the picture. Degreasing and preparing a template - drawing Further, with the aid of a detergent, it is necessarydegrease the surface inside the mug. To do this, you will need either alcohol or an ordinary dishwashing detergent. We treat the entire surface and then wipe it dry. Then, a variation of the template is inserted into the inner part of our craft. Note that during the preparation of the drawing option, your template was still. You can use usual scotch for this. Using paints for ceramics, we transfer the drawings, or rather - its contours on our cup. To do this, you need to traverse each area of the template using a thin brush. After - we paint our parts, this is the most exciting work. But, here it is necessary to try not to go beyond the contours, so as not to spoil the appearance of the work. Wherever the sky is depicted, you need to draw the stars with white acrylic paint. Smoke from the pipe, draw on both sides, using the glass inside, and also from the outside. After, with the help of white paint, we paint over our house. Windows in this case do not need to be painted. To ensure that the color spot does not give a gleam, and the paint is laid flat, it is necessary to apply several layers of coloring. After that, you need to paint the sky. Usually, one coat of paint is enough. Brush should be kept in a perpendicular position, from the surface of the mug. We put the paint on by tamping. This will help to form the required version of the texture of the picture. Decor and baking After, it is necessary with the help ofblue background draw white details of our celestial bodies of smoke, as well as stars. Draw for fastening. After, wait until the paint dries from all the elements. Next, it should be placed in the oven in order to conduct the baking processes. After a while, the mug will be completely ready. Note that you need to put something under the mug (for example - foil), so that the paint does not leave traces on the household device. Now, the cup is ready, you can safely give it, or use it!
