IMPORTANT TIPS: 
1. Regular sharpie designs wash off, even if baked. 
2. Use oil-based markers, bake designs per instructions. 
3. Hand wash only! Even my oil based and baked designs washed away slightly in the dishwasher. Mostly where I had retraced areas!

I tucked slipper socks inside as gifts for the cousins last Christmas.

  5. Cute! I hope to do the tomorrow with my grands. I bought the cups and oil-based markers today. I don't see any instructions for baking. Can you help me know at what temp and for how long?

  6. Sorry, I did find the baking instructions. But do they need to be baked if I don't use the dishwasher?

  9. LOVE these! How do you get the orange color to stay orange? When I tried this over the weekend, the orange color turned a brownish purple...

    1. The orange shown in my photo is a regular sharpie marker:( Not great results for washing and not recommended. The color is an almost neon orange like a highlighter color. Vibrant!!!! I only found one orange in the oil based sharpies and haven't tried that. Is that what you used???? Craft paint is always an option. Use a thin tip art brush. Craft paint bakes nicely and self cures in 22 days without baking. that means don't wash or disturb design for that long:)
