Chalk Couture Explore More DIY Enamel Mugs

Chalk Couture Explore More DIY Enamel Mugs

I don’t get giddy very often, but today’s project makes me SO happy!

From the moment I became a designer with Chalk Couture, I knew I wanted to make these DIY mugs for my adult kids.

All of them are outdoors people, so I knew they would love these.

I’ll be visiting my middle son and his wife soon and I’m planning to give them two of these mugs. 

I can’t wait to see their reaction to them!

I made a quick video showing how I made them.  The photos, directions, and supply list are also below.

Here’s what you’ll need to make a set of your own (affiliate links included to help you find the products you’ll need):

Chalk Couture Explore More Transfer

Directions to make  Chalk Couture Explore More mugs:

  • Choose a transfer from the set of 12 and remove it from the backing paper.
  • *Remember to pull it off side to side and not diagonally so the transfer doesn’t stretch.
  • “Fuzz” the transfer on a microfiber towel several times so the transfer won’t become permanently stuck on the mug.
  • Decide whether you want the design to face you or be on the back of the mug and position it, smoothing out all the bubbles in the design area.
  • Tip – Leave the edges of the transfer not pressed down so it will be easier to remove it once you are done.
  • Apply Couture ink with the small squeegee or stir stick.  I find it easier to cut the squeegee in half or quarters to work on small areas.
  • Drag the squeegee across the transfer.  Make sure the entire design is covered, then remove the excess ink and put it back in the original pot.
  • Remove the transfer carefully from the mug, again pulling side to side and not diagonally.
  • If you got any ink on your fingers, clean them before you handle the mug.
  • Use a heat gun to dry inked design to the touch.
  • Place in a cold oven and set it at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.  Allow the mug to cool in the oven after the timer goes off.

That’s it!

If you get any ink on the mug, wipe it off with a damp cloth before the ink dries.

Isn’t that adorable!

These Chalk Couture Explore More mugs are so fun to make and look amazing!

My youngest son wanted one of his own.  He chose the Wander design and made it by himself.

If I would have had 12 mugs I would have made all 12 designs.  I love them that much!  I have placed another order, so I definitely will be making more.

Here’s each design that we made on the mugs close up.
