Hey girls, it's me Brooke! I was so honored that Loulou herself asked me to guest post on her blog that when she said I needed to take time out of my Laudy Daudy vacay to show her bloggies how to make 'Pimp Cups' I grabbed another brewski and poured my heart into this little number (e.g. forgive mis-spellings).
First you need a cup/wine glass of your choice. I would suggest plastic but glass will work too. I got mine at Target (the red BULLSEYE!) for $2.68. See exhibit A.
Then you need spray paint. Oil based! Metallics (gold, silver, bronze) look especially pimp-esque! Two light coats are better than one heavy coat!!!
Then a few dazzling “Sharpie Paint Markers”. OIL BASED! (The water based markers are sold in the adjacent display and can get mixed in so read the label!) This is what you’ll use to make your “logo.” These markers are the priciest thing on the list so if you only want to splurge on one or two of these fine art utensils you can add more color with gemstones!!!
After you have drawn your logo and made sure it’s DRY, it’s time to BEDAZZLE YOUR HEART OUT!
Several things will work for your pimp crystals. Self-stick rhinestones are easy to apply but expensive. A big package of jewels (that’s what she said) of the plastic variety is cheap and Elmer’s glue works like a charm!!!
The bigger the gem stone the more it will try to slide out of place so a little trick is apply a SMALL amount of glue onto the cup… let it dry for a few (30) seconds then apply the jewel to the glue.
AND WA-LAH! You and Little John are homeys!
Now go forth, and big pimp. Love...
