If you have great handwriting, this would be the easiest DIY mug you'll every make. Materials: Cheap ceramic mugs (doesn't have to be expensive) Oil-based Sharpie marker – I used white 1-2 Q-Tips Rubbing alcohol A pencil Instructions: 1. Ensure the mugs are fully washed and dried to remove any residue. 2. Start sketching or decorating your mug with a sharpie. 3. Dip a Q-Tip into the rubbing alcohol and carefully rub off what you don’t want. 4. Let your mugs sit for a few days before throwing them into the oven to ‘bake’ the design on them. 5. When ready, preheat your oven to 425° and bake for 35 minutes. To prevent any cracking in the mug, put the mugs on a cookie sheet and put them into the oven as soon as you turned the heat on.
I've seen something similar on Etsy! This is too cute.
Great idea! My husband needs a new office mug anyways, so I'll be customizing one with a sharpie. Thanks for sharing!
Cute idea! Except I don't like black mugs. I'll make one with a white mug and red lettering.
I need more clarification on this, how exactly is this done in the picture? were the mugs used already black and a white sharpie was used? It would be nice for more clarification!:)
