DIY sharpie mugs

DIY Sharpie mugs are super popular. You can create really cool gifts for the holidays or any special occasion! Be on the lookout for inspiration when your out and about and online.

IMPORTANT TIPS: 
1. Regular sharpie designs wash off, even if baked. 
2. You need to use oil-based markers, and bake your designs per instructions. 
3. Hand wash! Some of my designs washed away slightly in the dishwasher. Mostly where I had retraced areas!

  37. I followed the directions for these but the paint/marker came off with the first washing :( any suggestions to fix this?

    ReplyDelete
  38. Reg sharpie markers came off after a few washes for me. But, not the oil based! I've also had great results with Martha Stewart multi surface craft paints!
    Questions:
    Did you wash cup and dry then swab surface with alcohol and let dry prior to painting?
    Did you use oil based sharpie, the kind you have to shake?
    Did you let the cup fully dry before baking?
    Did you bake for 30 to 45 mins 350 degrees?

  39. ahhh see i didnt know there were special sharpies i thought they were all the one kind. Interesting. These are so cute and easy to do, well done!
