Americana® Decou-Page™

  • Dishwasher-Safe Decou-Page (DS132)

Other supplies

  • water container
  • palette or plastic plate
  • paper towels
  • rubbing alcohol
  • scissors
  • pencil
  • 3/4" flat brush
  • white ceramic mug
  • assorted scrapbook paper (color of choice)

NOTE: Let dry completely between painting steps.

  1. Clean the coffee mug with rubbing alcohol on a paper towel and let it dry completely.
  2. Print off three favorite family photos on an laser jet printer. Use scissors to cut them out.
  3. Find three scrapbook papers that you like and trace a border to go around each photo using a pencil. Use scissors to cut them out.
  4. Use a 3/4" flat brush and Dishwasher-Safe Decou-Page to coat the front of the mug.
  5. Place down the first scrapbook paper and brush more Dishwasher-Safe Decou-Page on top.
  6. While the scrapbook paper is still wet, add the photo on top, then brush more Dishwasher-Safe Decou-Page on top to seal the photo.
  7. Repeat steps 4-6 until you have all three photos and backgrounds on the mug. (It is ok if they are layered; that is what Decou-Page is for.)
  8. Follow the label instructions, and you will have a dishwasher-safe mug.
