Couple Mug : Painting, Creativity & Desperation

Friday, December 20, 2013

Hello hello....

I love doing D.I.Y. craft or art... Well probably not as good or as beautiful as the artwork of others, but it's alright. I also like to go to any art exhibitions, in my free time.

I've did this both for Earth Hour.
For this sketch I've received an invitation to the gala screening for the film 'Lagenda Budak Setan' at GSC Pavilion, Kuala Lumpur. [ Read About It Here ]

It's two weeks prior to the wedding day of my blogger friends, I'm planning to give away a pair of mugs in conjunction with their first met date. *wink... wink*

but as a hard-core unemployed, I was only able to buy 2 pairs of plain mug and some other things.. While in the gift shop, without thinking I bought a pair of plain colour mugs and some other things..

I almost started to wrapped it and I remembered that I had seen something called "Mugs pop-art" in Google. Mugs pop-art uses a lots of way to decorate a plain mug like drawing, writing and sketching around the mug.

So I got an idea ... and my journey began ...

This is some of the material i use, there are few things I forgot, Sharpie pens.
This Pop-art stuff are something like paint that has Glitters or glow-in-dark and more.
Le Mug : I've read in most of D.I.Y blog - less shining mugs the better, the paint it will stick and last longer.
Start off with sketch at both mugs.
It's kind of difficult to draw in such surface.
Once done with sketch, i started to paint it with glitter pop-art paint.
On the other side of the mug, i've painted 'Starbucks' logo.  
According to the guide, i need to dried it right under the hot sun.
During the first week [remember : two weeks to go], only two whole days - i managed to put it outside. The rest of the week - raining! 

If I followed the guidelines properly, i should at least let it dry in the sun for 3 days. On the 4th day, i need to bake it. 

Seriously... Bake it??

Dont ask me.. I dont even get the chance...

My Mader [read : mother] accidentally has touched the not-quite-dry-yet mugs, causing the paint stick together and peels - off. Just like that...

So I have to restart again..
Like deja-vu, Mother Nature does not seem to side with me this time, probably because there is something wrong ...

...but what??

The second time and this is Wednesday | 3 days before wedding reception.
AGAIN this time, "someone" has touched it [the mugs] and ruin all the paint work. *Playing detective for few hours..*

I have tried to fix it but ... 

....I was scolded by my cat. *Pouting*

This is Mimi, I've been using her favourite [sleeping] spot to dry those mugs for the last two weeks. Hahaha...
Actually, i have no more time to spare. Moreover in this uncertain weather... 

Can't break down and cry now... Chewahh..... *Drama Queen mode : On!*

Finally, I got the inspiration while staring out the window in the kitchen waiting for the rain to subside.

I bought another two plain Mugs and two Sharpie pens - a silver and a gold. Another one day to go and i'm done!

Freehand yo!

*Breathe in.. breathe out*




Oh... What the heck... You Only Live Once, neh?
