A cool striped mug is not only a great piece of tableware but also a fantastic and inexpensive gift for the coming holidays. The supplies are painters tape, Martha Stewart Metallic Paint and a paintbrush, scotch artist tape for curves, scissors and a mug. Arrange your tape in a pattern for your stripes. Don’t worry about the height of the tape at this point. BUT, do leave “drinking room” at the top. While the paint is non-toxic, you probably don’t want your lips touching it. Once you have placed your stripes all the way around the cup, place painters tape around the top of the stripes. The rest of the tutorial is here, finish the mug and make someone happy with it!
