Sunflower Glitter Tumbler - for me!

I often don't make things for myself and I've made quite a few epoxy tumblers and finally decorated my own.

Of course everyone knows I love ladybugs, obvious from my name, but I also love sunflowers and have seen some gorgeous sunflower tumblers out there.

Supplies used:
Ozark 30 ounce stainless steel tumbler 
Glitter Chimp Pearl ultra fine glitter
Glitter Chimp Steel City ultra fine glitter
Glitter Chimp Honeycomb chunky glitter
Hayes Water Slide Paper
Images from the internet 



I learned a trick for the water slide to apply it more easily, I mirror image for printing and the spray with acrylic sealer, usually 2-3 coats, and I can lay the water slide down and slide the paper from the top instead of sliding out from underneath the image. It makes it so much easier!


I used paint.net to overlay some of the sunflowers and ladybugs and I was able to print all the images on a 4x6 piece of water slide. This is only the second time I've tried chunky glitter and I need more practice for sure before I get the method down but I did learn to sprinkle lightly so it lays flat better. 


I'm still waiting for this to cure right now so I can start using!

  3. WOW ... I won't pretend to understand all that is involved in making a mug like this, I think it's above my capabilities. But I am in awe at how absolutely gorgeous it is!
