Personalized Mugs

27 Jun

If you are a Pinterest follower you have probably seen the personalized coffee mugs that you can do yourself.  There have been many that use a sharpie pen and then bake the mug for 30 minutes.  Well I wasn’t so sure that would work so I gave it a try.  I did not have any success with this technique, ink washed right off.  But it was fun to personalize the mug.  So I would highly recommend using a ceramic pen like Pebeo Vitrea 160 and following the baking instructions.  I have decorated mugs with this paint that have been through the dishwasher many times and the paint is still holding up.  So spend a little money on the ceramic pen and by the mugs at the dollar store, you will still have a nice gift with little money spent and it will last.
