The Sharpie would wash off in the dishwasher.
The Sharpie would wash off from a hand-rinse.
The Sharpie would wash off if it was looked at the wrong way.
Well. Maybe not that last one, but you get the idea.
But then I found an 8 pack of metallic Sharpies on clearance for pocket change, and I knew that I had to find a way to make the Sharpie stay!
Teheh. I made a rhyme.
Here's what you do!
Ignore my very dirty oven.
Gather your supplies: a plain mug (cleaned, and perhaps given a wipe down with rubbing alcohol), Sharpies in the color of choice, and a steady hand. (I missed that last one, as you can tell from my wonky lines....)
Draw your design! There are endless possibilities here. Get creative!
Place mugs in oven, and then turn your oven to 425 degrees and set a timer for 1/2 an hour. When time is up, turn your oven off but keep the mugs inside until completely cooled.
Allow mugs to sit for a day before washing.
Viola! Sharpie mugs with staying power!
I have the most wobbly hand in the world. Sigh....
