Fearless Red Dragon Mug

This medieval styled mug is fiercely designed with a fire-breathing dragon head and body. The neck doubles as a handle and the red and gold accents give it the finishing touches.

For best results, please read all instructions before beginning project. Refer to photo for color and design placement.

 

  1. Wipe mug with damp sponge to remove bisque dust.
  2. Brush three coats of Bright Straw to dragon’s face, eyes, teeth and throat.
  3. Brush three coats Really Red to top of dragon’s head and neck, lightly brushing across the yellowed face and neck to create a mottled look. Continue painting red over body (including base). Leave wings and toenails unpainted.
  4. Brush three coats Black to wings, toenails and horns. Let dry.
  5. Use Liner brush to paint design around eyes, eyeballs, nostrils, horns and decoration in dragon’s crest. Let dry.

  7. Pour small puddle of Fired Gold on palette. Coat tips of No. 3 Fan brush with gold and very lightly brush across the dragon’s scales on neck and body and tip of crest on head.  If desired, lightly brush across wings and/or use end of brush and dab a few small gold dots.  Embellish as desired. Let dry.
