We were gifted these Colorshot Paint Markers recently at the Haven bloggers conference. A group of my blogger friends and I teamed up to create a paint marker challenge to see all of the fun projects we could come up with! In full transparency, I can host an epic party, set a table, and DIY just about anything, but I have the artistic ability of a 5 year old!!! After trying a few projects that failed, I decided to paint a mug with the Colorshot Paint Markers. Because I had a blank coaster laying around, I also used the markers on a coaster.

What to know about the Colorshot Paint Markers
The first step is to shake the paint markers well. Then, remove the cap and prime the tip. I tried each color out on a paper plate first. This is how I learned that if colors will be touching, let the first color set for 30 minutes before applying the next. The colors in the rainbow started to bleed together because I did not do this. The color is set after 30 minutes, and cured after 24 hours. Always hand wash your mug, never put it in the dishwasher. Wipe off the tips, if needed, and remove to rinse if they are really mucky. Really, that’s all you need to know! Now you’re ready to paint a mug with Colorshot Paint Markers!
I chose a white, blank ceramic mug at the craft store. It was pretty shiny, so I wasn’t sure how the paint markers would adhere. But, they worked beautifully! Lemons are so fun and cheery, and I love to use them in my summer decor. Plus, I can actually paint them! There’s not much else that I can paint! The markers have great coverage and completely cover in one coat. They work just as a regular marker would, except even better!
The sky is really the limit on what you can create! They come in different colors, metallics, and even chalk paint! Be sure to check out what my other friends created with their Colorshot Paint Markers!
I love your lemons! They are so cute and cheery! PLUS, THESE ARE some REALLY GREAT TIPS ABOUT THE COLOR SHOT PAINT MARKERS! definitely learned a few tips and pointers for the next project!
Thanks so much, Stephanie! This was such a fun challenge!
So fun! You make me believe that I could actually paint a pretty good lemon. And thanks for the warning about the colors blending together — like watercolors perhaps.
If I can paint a lemon, you can paint a lemon!!! But that’s probably all I can paint! Thanks for reading!
The lemon pattern is so charming! good to know that the markers will take a handwash and not bleed! happy to craft with you 🙂
Thanks so much, Marie! Yes, my mug hand washed just fine! This was so fun to craft with all of you!
