Crafty Times (8)

Crafty Times is a new thing I am trying on the blog where I can share some of the art and crafts I have created (you can too of course). I really dabble in a wide variety of crafts and hope you can find something that sparks your interest or inspires you!
I was in a gift swap on one of the forums I am a member of that was for coffee/tea mugs for this chilly season. One of the mugs needed to be handcrafted/painted/decorated.  
I found this idea on Pinterest to make mugs dipped in nail polish for an abstract art look.  I thought, well I have a ton of nail polish so why not give it a shot, and managed to find an inexpensive mug. I used a dark purple/plum color and a gold color on a yellow mug, and well it didn't come out quite as I expected but still unique and something I will try again sometime.
Have you tried something from Pinterest lately?  How did it go?


  1. Oh that's so neat! I've been doing nail marbling this last couple weeks and having so much fun with it. I'll have to pick up some dollar mugs and give this a go! Are they dishwasher safe? Or hands only?

    1. It was really simple and I want to try it a few more times to get the techniques down. I hand washed it not too long after but not sure if they can be washed in the dishwasher.
