The Yeti Tumbler Craze!

I'm back again this week, and this time to bring you a video...shocking I'm sure since I haven't done one in years. This one is How To Hydro Dip A Metal Tumbler.  I learned to do this, because last Christmas, I purchased painted Yeti tumblers for all the members of my family, and they were so super expensive, and only came in one color, so I talked to a friend at the hardware store,  and learned to paint the tumblers myself, and enhance them with Ranger Archival Inks and Tim Holtz Stencils.  I've given them out as gifts, and in so doing, everyone wanted to know how to do it, so here is the video and the pictures of the tumblers I've done so far. I will make a lot more soon.
 
 
 
If you notice the ones with 'T' and 'M', you probably have a good guess who received those. ;0) This was super fun to do, and will really work with any metal tumbler or most metal items. If you make one, send me the photo!

I hope your hands get creatively dirty soon!

  5. Oh wowsers girl!! First off, I LOVE your deep south accent!! Thank-you so much for such a fab video and letting us inside and outside your lovely home. You really are an excellent teacher! I have to admit that when you started spraying into the bucket, I kindof had my eyebrows raised as it looked an almighty mess, but then it turned out to be magical!! BRILLIANT job!!! The end results are fantabulous!! I am very sure that Tim and Mario were thrilled with their personalised cups. Well done you for going thru sooo much work - the end results really are amazing! I hope you do lots more videos. Happy Weekend to you Anita! Nicola x

  6. Back again...if Ranger et al come up with a line of distress aerosol sprays, you should negotiate a percentage! Nx

  8. Anita, this is way cool!!!!!!!!!!!! I love, love, love it!!! It reminds me that years ago I did a dipping spray paint onto paper. If I remember correctly it was glass spray paint. I must try a cup!!! Hopefully when I have time I'll remember that idea and where it is :-)) Pinterest!!

  13. Does the baking remove the toxic nature of the spray paints you are using?? I don't think I'd like to drink out of a cup that had spray paint on it - isn't that stuff toxic?

    1. The baking seals the paint, and so does the final coat of sealer. Since the paint is on the outside of the cup, you are safe to drink from it, as the inside is not coated. Thanks.

    2. But isn't the sealer also toxic? Part of your mouth does touch the outside of the cup when you are drinking. They are certainly cute, but I'd still worry about toxic issue.

    3. I honestly am not sure, and so I left about an inch and half unpainted on the outside from which to drink from, just to be safe, and plus I think it looks nicer that way. Thanks again.

  18. What a brilliant idea Anita, thanks so much for sharing it! (and love the T & M tumblers and I'm pretty darn sure they loved them too!) Deb xo

  19. Very cool and original tumblers Anita, I would never have thought of marbling on these or that doing this would be so easy. I'm not sure where I can get these metal tumblers in Scotland. The metal mugs I have are the closest to these they are the metal thermos type mugs for coffee, tea etc. and are heat resistant but plastic lined. I'm not sure if they'd be able to withstand oven temperatures. It was lovely seeing you doing a video, and the magic of the transformation of these so quickly done and drying almost instantly, makes me want to try this. Thanks for the tutorial. Alexandra x

  20. These are very awesome and looks relatively easy to do. Just one question. Does putting in the oven leave an odor in your house or oven

    1. Hi. There is a slight odor while in the oven, but once it was out the odor didn't last long. It's not a bad odor... Like nail polish maybe. No odor stayed in my oven either, and I did 8 of these so far. Thanks for asking.

  22. Very cool technique and what fabulous results! Messy, but it looks great fun too. Useful to have all that space in the garden to play in. I bet Tim and Mario love theirs, as well as all the other recipients. Lovely to see you in action indoors and out!

  23. I have been meaning to get back to this post for weeks. I read through it and watched the video when it was first posted and didn't have time to comment. I am floored by this technique. Such a cool background for stencils. I never would have thought that spray paint and a bucket of water could produce just incredible results. I know Tim and Mario loved their tumblers. Sensational video too!!!! -- Hugs ME
