Have you seen all those tutorials online for mugs decorated with permanent markers? The idea is to draw on a mug, then bake it in the oven to seal the marker on. I have seen this online for years but was always skeptical of it…and mostly afraid my mug would shatter in the oven! I finally decided to try it and I was very pleased with the results.
Here’s what you do!
- Draw on a clean, dry mug using a permanent marker.
- Once finished, place mug into the oven THEN turn temperature to 400F.
- Keep mugs in oven for 20 minutes, turn off oven and leave mugs in.
- Remove mugs from oven once temperature has cooled and returned to normal.
I used a pink permanent marker, but I’m planning to use a black one for other designs.
