Jiji Cup

Sorry this is late! I've been a bit sick. I still don't feel to good but I really wanted to get this posted up.
A long time ago before I knew what anime was I already was obsessed with anime. I loved watching Pokemon and Sailor Moon on TV. My favorite movie was Kiki's Delivery Service. This movie still holds a special place in my heart. I even named one of my cats Jiji.
This cup is inspired by a scene in that movie. This does require a little bit of drawing and painting but don't worry too much. If you mess up with the permanent marker it can be washed off. Then just take painting it slowly.

What You Will Need
A White Glass Coffee Cup
Black Glass Paint (Regular acrylics will NOT work)
A Permanent Marker
A Paintbrush

Step One
Draw out your design using the permanent marker. I used a reference picture I had found online.

Step Two
Paint the designover the image you drew. If you need to do multiple layers of paint make sure your paint is dry. Also make sure your cup has dried for about an hour before moving on to the next step.

Step Three
Bake your cup. You'll want to follow the instructions on your paint. Mine was heated up for 30 minutes at 350F. You'll want to turn on the heat after the cup is in the oven and let the cup cool down in the oven. Any sudden temperature changes could cause your glass to break.

I hope you guys like this! It is my first time posting a craft tutorial up here! If anyone tries this feel free to show it off here or post over on the Facebook fanpage.
