Escapist Coloring Club – March

The Escapist Coloring Club Prompt – March 1, 2019

***

Well, I finally got started on painting this ceramic mug.

I’d gotten it a long time ago from my daughter, I think for my birthday. It came with these markers to use, but they were pretty much dried up, even though the package was new. So, I found this other blank mug to paint, that has little paint pots. I couldn’t find any other food safe markers, and the paints were food safe, it said.

I found out that painting the design is much harder than coloring with pencils or markers in a coloring book. Way harder!

It’s messy, and almost impossible to stay in the lines. So, it’s very slow going. The paint does dry in between sessions, though, so that is good.

Anyway, I’ve got a long time to go before I can bake them to set the colors. So far it’s fun to do, so we’ll see how it is when I’m finished.

I haven’t done anything in my coloring books lately, but here’s what I’ve done so far on the mug.

  1. My husband got me one of those too and I had the same trouble with the markers it had. I tried using some other paint markers I had but it didn’t look right so I gave up. I have enough mugs that I don’t really need it. I was going to use it to hold pencils or something anyway. Yours looks great!

    • Thanks! I’ll use mine for coffee, as a couple of my regular mugs have gotten chips around edges, so a new one is good.
      Maybe I should try a smaller bristled brush, rather than the one it came with. I’ll probably do better making my own design on the blank mug…no lines to stay within! 🙂

    • Thanks, Linda! Next painting session I’m going to try a smaller brush, then maybe I can stay in the lines of the design. Check your craft stores…they probably have them, or have them to order. I’m still loving your calendar coloring pages. 🙂
