Paint the cup all over (even on the inside). Then let it dry.
When the cup is done drying start to hot glue the cheap paint brushes you will never use again onto it.
Glue until the paint brushes go around as much as you want them to (or until you run out).
Start to pant the brushes all over with the black paint.
When you are done painting them front and back let it dry.
When it is dry repaint the entire cup. If it is top heavy (like mine was) prop it up. If it needs another coat of paint then repeat steps 9 and ten but otherwise your done!!!! Congratulations you have just one first place!
