It's been a little while since I've presented a craft tutorial, so I thought I'd share a project that I'm working on for my 30th birthday party.
Watercolor patterns are all the rage this season. In creating this project, I was inspired by David Stark's plate designs for West Elm, Anthropologie's dinnerware and this tutorial from Once Wed for Ombre Napkins.
1. Place the protective covering over your work surface. Paint will flick as you're working, so make sure you're not wearing your favorite shirt either.
3. Apply thin strokes to your cup. Feel free to experiment here - it's fun! Just make sure you don't paint the cup to the brim. You don't want your guests putting their lips on dried paint.
4. Line up your cups to dry. I gave mine about an hour, just to make sure there was no bleeding.
The End. Enjoy!
