I loved this idea when I saw it! How neat to be able to create your own mug design using sharpie markers. I decided to make one for my nephew Gavin's birthday and a pair for my friend Britni and her husband Zack for Christmas.
It was so much fun designing these personalized mugs! For Gavin I chose to write his name on one side and draw a mustache on the other. For Britni and Zack I made Mr. and Mrs. mugs. I baked them like the directions said and all looked good.
The gifts were a hit!
But then, Gavin's started chipping and before he knew it, the whole design was gone. In doing some research, I found that sharpie markers don't stick to mugs even after baking. I also saw that to make this project work, you need to use ceramic markers.
