- Coffee Mug - I actually like to find blank white ones at the thrift store because you can find some fun funky shapes. Or as you can see I also did a sugar canister.
- Oil Based Sharpies - Normal sharpies will not work for this. You can find oil sharpies at a craft store like Michaels. I would go with a fine point or extra fine if you want to do intricate detailing. I have had the best luck with black. Other colors work but tend to change color with the baking process.
- Wet Wash Cloth - This will make it easy to wipe of mistakes.
MAKE IT (DETAILED):
You will need both fine and extra fine oil based sharpies for this.
After washing and drying the mug, sketch out your picture. I usually free hand it directly on the mug but sometimes I sketch it on paper first. Then, I tape it on to see how it will fit.
For the picture of the girls, I used the bigger markers to plot out the big points first and then I went back with the extra fine markers to add in the details.
Voila!! There you have it! So fun and so easy!
