My Sharpie Mug

I’d seen a few people do this and I just had to give it a go myself. What a fun way to customise your own mug.

But what was I going to write…?

I decided to use the quote ’We’ll Always Have Paris’ from the film ‘Casablanca’

Once I’d decided on this I practised my handwriting on a scrap piece of paper. When I felt happy with my design, I began to work on the mug.
I baked the mug in the oven at 220 degrees for 30 minutes giving the ink enough time to bake and set on to the mug.
Overall it took me 40 minutes to make and I think its such a creative, cute and cheap thing to do.

{N.B, I would choose to handwash your Sharpie Mug and not put it in the dishwasher for fear of the ink washing off. However, if the ink does rub off (which will happen over time) it can easily be fixed by writing over the faded ink and popping back in the oven.}

Give it a go for yourself!
