Then a friend suggested I use foil instead of paint. Thankfully I like to eat these wafers so had some at home.
Still it needed a handle. Originally I was going to make it with FIMO but another friend suggested using foam rubber instead. I looked through my stash and found this Christmas sign that I had gotten off a Christmas card. Perfect thickness!
The whole thing did not cost me a cent. I used the cylindric cover from a paintbrush, the foil and that plastic badge which looks like brushed silver (for the bottom of the mugs).
