Paint bowl and Stick at Rewardme

Before you pour the paint into the bowl, stir it with the stick so it’s well mixed.

Pouring the paint in the bowl at Rewardme

Plunge the mug in the bowl so that the paint reaches the desired height. Be careful not to go too high, better not have your kids put their mouths on the paint when they drink. Try to hold the mug as straight as possible for a straight demarcation line.

Make sure you allow enough time for the excess paint to stop dripping. This kind of paint is thick, so it shouldn’t take more than 1 min.

Dry the Mug at Rewardme

Place the mug to dry, painted side facing down. Be careful not to touch the painted side to avoid leaving fingerprint marks on it! It’s a fairly delicate operation that should be handled by an adult. Mugs take about 1 day to dry.
