paint the background with plain colours
when the surface is dry, add the texture

create your own texture!
use at least two colors for every pattern
draw the outline with a permanent marker

    • Hi Maggie! Thanks for your comment. It’s very easy to paint these cups with children, and fun of course! Try it and show mw your result! I’m always curious!!
