Alcohol Ink Mub

"Crafting with Alcohol Ink has been around awhile. You might have even tried it. I saw someone doing this technique and knew I had to try it out. The variety comes from plastic wrap for the wrinkle technique. This was my first attempt using the wrap technique and I am really happy with the outcome. I wanted to be extra safe and I didn't put any materials around the top part of the mug where your lips would come in contact with."

Materials List

  • coffee mug
  • plastic wrap
  • black marker
  • rubbing alcohol
  • paper towel
  • choice of alcohol ink colors
  • clear spray glaze
  • dishwasher safe Mod Podge
  • foam brush
  • painters tape
  • scissors

Instructions

  1. Layout one layer of plastic wrap on your table surface.

  2. Center your mug on the plastic wrap and draw a circle around the bottom of the mug. Remove the mug and place another layer of plastic wrap on top.

  3. Off to the side, tape off the bottom of the mug if you don't want the ink to get on it. (this is optional) Trim the tape to the size of the mug. Use the Rubbing Alcohol and paper towel, clean off the outside of the mug.

  4. Go around the circle in a random fashion with all the different colors of ink you desire. There is no need to waste ink on the bottom of the mug. This is why we took the time to draw the circle. I didn't want the entire mug covered with ink so my circle of ink is rather thin.

  5. Place the mug in the center of your ink circle and then lift up the plastic wrap to cover the entire mug.

  6. Press the plastic wrap around the mug pushing the ink up the side of the mug. Make sure there is a tight contact all around the mug and that the plastic wrap will not come undone. Let it sit for 24 hours. Then unwrap the plastic wrap and discard it.

  7. If you are happy with the results spray a light coat of spray glaze over the entire outside of the mug. Wait for it to completely dry. Using the foam brush, paint a thin layer of the Mod Podge. Allow it to completely dry, at least 2 hours. Paint 3 total layers of Mod Podge.

  8. Follow the directions on the Mod Podge and allow it to sit the required amount of time. When this is done, the mug will be top-rack dishwasher safe.
