What You Need

Tulip Puff Paint

Aleene’s Clear Casting & Coating Epoxy Resin Kit

Stainless steel tumbler

Red adhesive permanent vinyl

Vinyl decal

Glitter and Peppermint Sprinkles

Electrical or resin tape

Heat gun

Wooden stir sticks

Plastic cups

Apply vinyl to tumbler

Step 1

Remove the lid from the tumbler if necessary. Cut a piece of red adhesive vinyl to fit the tumbler and carefully adhere it in place. Apply the vinyl decal to the front of the tumbler.

Apply Puff Paint for drippy effects

Step 2

It’s time to create paint dripping effects on your tumbler! Use the Tulip Puff Paint to create a frothy marshmallow drip around the top of the tumbler. Hold the tip of the Puff Paint to the tumbler and gently squeeze, rotating the tumbler until you’ve created dimensional paint drips all the way around. Use more paint for larger drips and less paint for smaller drips— gravity will do all the work to create dazzling dripping effects! Be careful to not get any paint inside the mug or directly on the rim; clean with soap and warm water if you do.

Add sprinkles and glitter

Step 3

Add faux peppermint sprinkles and glitter to the paint drips while the Puff Paint is still wet. Let the paint dry completely before proceeding.

 Apply red trim to bottom of the tumbler

Step 4 (optional)

Cut red trim to fit along the bottom of the tumbler and secure with Tacky Glue. This step is totally optional, but provides a cleaner final look to your winter tumbler!

Mix epoxy resin

Step 5

Cover the handle and inside of the tumbler with electrical or resin tape and place onto your tumbler spinner. Make sure you’re wearing protective safety gear before working with resin! Use disposable plastic cups and wooden stir sticks to mix the Aleene's Clear Casting & Coating Epoxy Resin according to package instructions.

Pour and spread epoxy resin into tumbler

Step 6

Start the tumbler spinning slowly. Carefully pour the epoxy resin onto the tumbler and use a gloved finger to spread the epoxy evenly over the mug, sealing in your custom designs!

Use heat gun to remove bubbles

Step 7

Glide the heat gun above the tumbler as it turns to eliminate bubbles. Let the tumbler spin for at least 12 hours while the epoxy resin cures.
