my boyfriend and I love my little pony friendship is magical. So for his birthday i wanted to make him something pony. The week before we went to the triftshop and I picked up a beer mug. At first i wanted to do etching, but i also didnt want to buy new craft stuff just for one thing. So i found the paint that toby used for somthing he made me. I drew out a picture based off one online. and as i began to paint i noticed it said washable paint. so it was not best for the item. but i was already one coat in. i painted three coats. and checked to see how easy it was to wash off, and just a drop made it run. so i found some matte spray paint in my craft items. gave it three coat, and it still was going to run.

I was so upset that i just gave it to my boyfriend early and told him about all of it. he loved it and put it up on a shelf with his other stuff. so im not sure how i feel about how this turned out. I like the look of it but its no longer useful.

Really cute design even if it is washable.

I hate it when that happens though when you start and then you have that "Ahh dang it" moment. Mine usually happen when cutting fabric. Lol

At least he can use this for holding pencils or something in the mean time? Maybe you can redo it if you ever get better supplies later.

Clearly he appreciated the gift anyway. Smiley

When the paints we washable anything you try to put over would wash off as well. Since the original paints probably have some type of additive that makes it not adhere to surfaces permanently.
