This is a very easy and quick project to spice up any pencil cup or container.
I do not recommend trying to do strips on the shape container I used it's very hard to get them to look right.
I use things I had on hand and I really love the way to came out.
Step 1: Material
For this project I used a
Frog brand painters tape
Two in one sharpie
High gloss purple spray paint
And this little sliver flower pot I had
Step 2: The Design
1 Decide on the design you want to use than draw it out on the painters tape.
2 clean the container with rubbing alcohol.
3 cut out the design and apply to the clean container
4 make sure that you press the tape in to any creases I recommend using you thumb nail to press the tape
Step 3: Sanding
Little lay sand around the tapes design to help the paint adhere better. The sand paper in the picture is 400 grit wet dry sand paper
Step 4: Painting
Clean the container with rubbing alcohol again than paint follow the instructions on the paint can I did two coats of high gloss purple.
Make sure that the paint you use is ok to use on the marital you are painting.
Step 5: Finish the Project
Let the paint dry completely and peal the tape off.
If the edges did not come as clean as you wanted I recommend out line the edge in a sharpie.
This will also work to add more color if you outline in a different color.
