I’ve been seeing paint drip mugs everywhere and decided to make my own! This is a great project idea if you plan to visit a local paint on pottery studio, it’s easy to do and comes out GREAT!
First you’ll need to choose a bisque mug. This pedestal mug is my favorite! Next, wipe off any dust with a damp sponge and let dry.
I used the neon family of Duncan Concepts – Orange, Red, Green, Blue, Yellow and then I used Bright Purple.
Pour some of the underglaze into a dish and dip a soft, wide brush in water, then mix it in with the paint. Not too much water, you just want enough so it glides down the side of the mug. Do one color, let dry, then move on to the the other colors, trying to to let them overlap or mix.
Let dry completely, then coat with Duncan Pure Brilliance Clear Glaze, let dry between each coat. Fire at Cone 06 on medium speed.
