Mug Sign Tutorial
To create my mug shaped sign, I started by applying a coat of Dixie Belle Voodoo Gel in the color Tobacco Road. The Gel Stains from Dixie Belle are easy to apply and create a nice base color before painting.
Once the gel stain was dry, I painted the surface with the color Honky Tonk Red by Dixie Belle.
Next, I used a portion of my Sprinkled With Love Transfer and Black Velvet Chalology Paste to add the words “Just For You” to a White Chalable Chip.
To complete this process, I first placed my transfer on the surface of the chip. Then I added a coat of the Chalkology Paste using a small squeegee. Be sure to apply an even coat and to remove any excess paste before moving on.
Once I was finished applying the Chalkology Paste, I removed the reusable transfer from the surface.
This left me with the perfect embellishment for the mug!
To finish up the look, I simply glued the chip to the center of the mug and let it dry.
Block Sign Tutorial
To make my block style sign, I started by cutting a 2×4 to measure 3 inches wide and 6 inches tall. Feel free to deviate from my measurements in order to make your sign fit your space.
Next, I used Dixie Belle’s Honky Tonk Red to paint the entire surface of the block.
Once the paint was dry, I used a retired Chalk Couture Transfer and Bright White Chalology Paste to cover the entire block with a heart pattern. This is a great example of how you can save your old transfers and use them again for new projects in the future. You could create a similar look with the February 14th Transferor theMini Buffalo Print Transfer. Or, dig into your pile of transfers from last year & get creative!!
This was the final result! It looks like a perfectly wrapped present.
While my block was drying, I used another portion of the Sprinkled With Love Transfer and Bright White Chalology Past to embellish a Black Chalkable Chip for the center of my block.
Once it was finished and dry, I finalized the project by attaching it to the painted block.
