DIY Watercolor Mug

My most favorite DIY is this tutorial on how to Marble Dipped Mugs. The marbling almost looks like a watercolor. All you need is some nail polish, a mug, warm water and a tooth pick. Best part, it's an easy DIY and takes less then 5 minutes. You can marble anything with nail polish. A mug, vase, Christmas ornament, paper, fingernails. Yes anything! But this tutorial is just how to marble dip mugs. houseofhipsters.com/ House Of Hipsters home decor and DIY blog

For most of last week I was sick and in bed with the most horrendous cold. After fighting it off for two weeks with the boy and kiddos sick as well, my body finally said uncle, you’ve joined the sick club too lady. Trying to make the most of my down time, I of course perused Pinterest! I’ve been meaning to do a quick and easy DIY on the blog and was looking for some inspiration when found this DIY Watercolor Mug project I thought was super cool! I had seen marbling techniques on nails but on household items, it was soooo fresh. That’s when the lightbulb lit up above my head while sipping on tea and honey out of plain white boring mugs. These puppies could use a bit of pep! Let’s hop outta bed and do this! Here we go! How to create a DIY Watercolor Mug!

Marble Dipped Mug

So there’s a good chance you might have everything you need.

Marble Dipped Mug

THINGS NEED TO CREATE A DIY WATERCOLOR MUG
mug (I got mine from Target)
• nail polish
• old container you do’t mind ruining
• bamboo sker or toothpick
• paper towel or parchment paper

Fill an old container with warm water. The warmer the better. Just be sure it is something you don’t mind having nail polish on since this process can leave some residue behind. When you fill it, don’t fill it too full. Take whatever piece you are going to dip and do a test run.

Marble Dipped Mug

Grab some pretty nail polish from a cupboard in your bathroom. There’s really no need to buy new, and you’ll only need a few drops to make a small swirl. Also, be sure NOT to grab a quick dry polish. Time is of the essence here, we don’t need to shorten our time even more with a quick dry. Also, don’t grab your Essie “Ballet Slippers”. You will want something with some pow! A bright or dark color works well.

Pour a few drops of polish into the water. Swirl with skewer if necessary.  A film will start to form (it is starting to dry already). Grab your mug because we’re finally ready to create that awesome DIY Watercolor Mug! Dip and swirl to pick up the paint. Place your mug on the paper towel to dry. Don’t touch it until it’s completely dry.

That’s it guys! That is all you’ve got to do! How cool is that? I think it looks a little like watercolor. What do you think?

DIY WATERCOLOR MUG HELPFUL TIPS:

Pour the polish close to the surface of the water. If dropped too high, it will sink to the bottom and not dissipate.

Trying using a plastic Solo cup first to get the hang of it.

Use 2 colors to get a really fun marbling effect.

Don’t use the brush to add the drops, pour it from the bottle.

Your mug is no longer dishwasher safe nor is it microwave safe. And if possible, don’t put the polish on an area where you would have food or place your lips. It’s just not healthy.

Only dip your item once. If you feel like it needs more. Let it dry and start again until you get the desired effect.

This process moves very quickly so be swift on your feet!

Don’t touch the mug until it’s dry. You don’t want to smudge it. If you really messed it up,you can take some nail polish remover to it.

When emptying out the water, be sure to scoop out all the extra polish with paper towel first or you will have a very colorful sink.

Marble Dipped Mug

And that is the easiest way to create a DIY watercolor mug!

Bravo bravo! Now I need to go to $1.00 store and get white cups to experiment on this DIY. And what the heck …. even when you are feeling under the weather, u r still super creative (AWESOME SAUCE!!). Hope you r feeling better!

    This would be really cute for mugs that are used as pencil holders – or for vases, etc! I probably would not attempt it for mugs that I actually used for food and beverage though, even if the color was not near the mouth/food area.

    They would be cute if dipped, dried then dipped in a 2nd color for a layered effect, too.

    Here’s a tip; line your container with glad wrap first s you don’t have to worry about getting nail polish on it! This is a good tutorial. I tried one from another website which says to drip the polish from the applicator, and you end up with splodgy polka dots. NOT the look I was going for!

    Reply
    • kyla March 27, 2015

      Hi Alex, I’m so sorry you are having that problem. Oddly, mine do not smell. Maybe it’s the polish? When you paint your nails with it, does the smell stick around?

      Reply
      • alex March 27, 2015

        Not sure as I rarely paint my nails, I’ll do so now, if it still smells I’ll take it of the mugs and start over with different polish.

  83. […] The first time that I made a set for myself, I used them too often and the polish began to chip after too many washings. You can try to seal the polish with a layer of clear polish, but that is up to you. Make a matching set and give them to your friends! There’s no end to the different color combinations, and the unique patterns will be loved by everyone! Try this DIY out for yourself! Check out the full tutorial and instructions over here! […]

    Wow those are gorgeous! You really did a great job explaining the process, and it turned out wonderful. I loved your addition of the helpful hints at the end, it will come in handy when I try this out. If you are ever looking for a different how-to on this, check this one out: https://omghow.com/articles/diy-marbled-coffee-mugs. It describes how to make a design with the nail polish in the water. Thanks so much for this detailed description, and I can’t wait to make one for myself using this technique.
