Watercolor Tumbler Tutorial
First, coat your cup with TWO coats of spray paint. I used Ultra Matte White from Rustoleum.
1
Use your choice of alcohol inks. I decided to spritz with rubbing alcohol to help spread ink easier.
2
Rubbing and blotting, continue to cover the cup with your colors. Different techniques = texture.
3
Continue adding colors and blending them to your liking. Layering colors is the name of the game.
4
Soften all the hard lines and don’t forget the bottom of the cup like I almost did😉
5
Spritz with 90% rubbing alcohol to add another layer of texture.
6
Using a tissue, put another layer of color. Spritz again with rubbing alcohol & continue to blend.
7
Saturate a cotton ball with rubbing alcohol and blot cup. Twist and pat to get desired effect.
8
Krylon Kamar Varnish seals alcohol ink w/o changing colors. THREE coats! Then let dry. WEAR A MASK!
9
Time for epoxy! I use Fast Set Ultra Clear from CCDIY. And I chose a color dust to add a little pop!
10
It is “Ethereal dust- Dreamy” from Solar Color Dust. It’s so pretty in the sun. Add & Mix well.
11
Apply epoxy evenly. I did a total of 2 coats. Let cure and you’re done! 🥳
