Steps:
1. Trace or free hand draw a mustache onto the shelf liner paper. Create a stencil by using a craft knife to cut out just the drawing portion.

2. Wipe the coffee mug with rubbing alcohol to clean it.

3. Position the stencil onto the top center of the mug. Dip the spouncer brush into the burnt umber paint, tap off the excess and tap into the open portion of the stencil. Peel the stencil and allow to dry.
