oops i did it again

remember this project? well, i couldn't control myself and had to do it again. i found the perfect little mug for 49 cents and just knew it wanted to be painted gold.

why is everything so much better half-painted gold? cause it is. i swear that hot chocolate tasted better. my husband just might start calling me midas. it seems like every time he comes home there's something new that i have painted gold. it's hilarious. i think if he comes home to find my son half-painted, then we will have a serious problem, but for now he laughs and says he loves it all. whataguy.

this is another simple project. find paint at the craft store that is meant for ceramic/glass, paint using thin coats, and follow the directions on the back of the paint to bake it so the paint will set.
my only tip would be to make sure the coats are super thin and let them dry in between. that seemed to make my life a little easier this time around. but really, you just paint, let it dry, then bake it. then you can use it to your heart's content, and even wash it in the dishwasher! (top rack)

oh gold, how i love thee.
anyone else have a paint-it-gold problem?
