Time to Make Your Sharpie Mugs

Yes, they are washable!

What You’ll Need:

  • Low gloss coffee mug – You can find these at most dollar stores. Low gloss makes it harder for the paint to chip when you wash it.
  • Oil-based paint pens – Available at most arts and crafts stores. They must be oil-based. Water-based paint will wash right off.

Instructions:

  • Preheat the oven to 250 degrees.
  • Make sure the mug is clean and dry.
  • Follow the paint pen instructions to get it started and test it on another surface.
  • Have your child draw on the mug as they please.
  • Bake at 250 degrees for 2 hours. (According to Destination Decoration, this temperature keeps the colors from changing, and 2 hours is long enough to keep the paint from chipping when the mugs are washed. You can read more about baking sharpie mugs HERE).
  • TIP: Mess up? Use rubbing alcohol on a Q-tip to erase any mistakes.
