Finally got around to trying out this Sharpie craft we have wanted to try for sometime. Have you done any writing or drawing on ceramics with a Sharpie yet? Our first attempt and we went with Sharpie Valentine Mugs since it is everything Valentines right now.
To make this craft you will need:
Mugs. We purchased ours from the Dollar Tree.
Sharpie Oil based pen a.k.a. Sharpie Paint Pen from the craft store.
Stencils or free hand. We did a little of both.
If you use a regular Sharpie permanent marker, you will not get the same long lasting wear as using the Paint Sharpie.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Clean and dry your mugs.
If using a stencil, place on mug.
Prep Sharpie pen per directions on package.
Begin to draw on mug.
If using a stencil, remove stencil once the paint dries some and continue on.
Let the paint cure on the mugs about 15 minutes before placing in the oven for 1 hour.
Remove allow to cool and use or gift.
Not too thrilled with how some of the paint pen ran under the stencil. Maybe not a good enough seal. But it adds the homemade, handmade feel to the mugs.
Don't forget to add you special little touches, like hearts and "xxxx & ooooo" to personalize your mugs.
His and her mugs for that special Valentines Day hot beverage drink together.
Share a mug full of love this Valentines Day!
