WHAT YOU NEED

THE INSTRUCTIONS

If it’s your first time using the pen, you’ll want to shake it to mix the paint up.  Test the pen on paper first, you might have to press up and down on the tip to get the paint flowing.  Draw or trace your design buy cheap generic viagra uk (you could use a stencil!).  If you make a mistake, the paint is easily removable from non-porous surfaces with rubbing alcohol and a q-tip before it sets.

Allow your design to dry for a few minutes.  Then put your mug into the oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes to allow the paint to set permanently. Remove and let cool.  Your new mug is now ready to use or to be gifted!

I tested my mugs with hand washing, and they did great.  To be safe, I will keep them out of the dishwasher.  Also to be safe, keep the paint away from the lip of the cup where you put your mouth.

Happy mug makeovering!

xo!Sarah

Hi I'm Sarah!

A friend once called me a "crafty ass bitch" and I loved it. I design, make, fix, style, cut, build, hammer, sew, solder, mix, weave, paint, photograph, edit, measure, pour, cook, plan, organize, repurpose & more.
