Fingerprint Flower Cup with Saucer
All you need are a few supplies to make these fingerprint flower cups or mugs. You can find plain white cups or mugs at IKEA, Charity shops or dollar stores. These mugs would also be great to give for Father’s Day or for a teacher gift.
- Plain white cup and saucer or mug
- Enamel Acrylic paint (for ceramics or glass)
- Small paint brush
- Modge Podge Sealer (Dishwasher Proof Sealer)
- Kitchen Paper
How To Make Fingerprint Flowers
- On a piece of scrap paper try your colour combinations and practice printing your design. We used damp kitchen paper to clean up.
2. Copy the design onto the cup, cleaning fingers in between colours.
3. Use a paint brush to add stem and antennae if needed.
4. Allow the paint to dry & bake in a low oven according to paint instructions.
5. For extra protection, use this sealer which will help keep the paint from coming off. It’s safe for top rack dishwasher use however to be extra careful we would recommend hand washing these mugs.
