It was a pretty easy one. Once you buy the markers everything is inexpensive. Sadly, the markers cost about $16 at Michael’s (I think that is where I got them). It really isn’t that bad of a price considering you will have them for a very long time and can write on just about anything with them: glass, metal, porcelain, stone, metal, and wood.
It can be run through the dishwasher or heated in the microwave too!
It is worth it, I promise.
Shake the pen for about 30 seconds. Remove the cap and push the tip of the pen into a tissue or piece of paper to get rid of the excess paint. Then start drawing or writing on your cups. Make sure you stay away from the rim. You don’t want it near where your lips will be. On that note, don’t put it inside the cup either.
It gets to be pretty fun… somewhat addicting? It is a good addiction.
Happy crafting! 🙂
This Exists… seriously.
I saw this on Yahoo News and wanted to share it 🙂 This Ramon Bruin looks like he’s a pretty fun artist.
According to his online bio:
“Ramon Bruin is a 31 year old talented freelance artist, who graduated at the Airbrush Academie in the Netherlands. He is mostly a self-taught artist. Besides a great passion for airbrush, he also draws and paints. With experience in multiple techniques and materials like acrylic-, oil, water paints, charcoal,
paint pens, pencils and graphite he makes unique artwork.
Ramon is always pushing his own boundaries.
The use of multiple styles and techniques develops him in a wide variation of arts.
From modern-expressionism to kick-ass airbrush designs and from photorealism to 3d optical illusion drawings.
With great passion for airbrush, Ramon studied (2007 – 2010) at the Airbrush Academie in Lelystad

These rooms are awesome! I love the room with the bookshelves 🙂
Michael’s has a ton of wooden letters. Some are finished and others are not. I decided to go with black letters that were already finished and an N in a different font that was unfinished. I decided to paint the N red and put it over my bed. It is pretty cute! However, now I wish I would’ve framed it but I didn’t have a frame on hand that would’ve looked right so that will come later.
*I swear my walls aren’t dirty… they are a light brown color and the lighting is bad 🙁
Pick an accent color and paint 2-3 coats of that color on the N. Let it dry between each coat.
Get some mini nails and mount your letters.
Adorable 🙂 I suggest you frame the letters though. Maybe paint the frame the color of the accent letter?

If you are very familiar with Ann Arbor, you are probably familiar with Sluggo. He is the work of David Zinn and appears randomly on the sidewalks. Zinn has been creating original artwork in and around Ann Arbor since 1987.
David’s artwork has been reproduced in Canada, England, Scotland, South Korea, Japan, and Australia, and can also be found on the inside of dumpsters in Ann Arbor and the outside of buses in Anchorage.
