3. Using a ruler, lightly sketch in an approximately 1/8” stripe extending across the tops of mugs. Refer to photo. Sketch in a bow on top of stripe to create a ribbon effect as shown. Make sure ribbon lines align on both mugs.
4. If desired, run masking tape along the top and bottom of ribbon to ensure a straight line when painting.
5. Use the No. 1 Liner to brush three coats of Black onto wording and ribbon. Remove tape then paint bow. Let dry completely.
