Pass and Fail on Sharpie Mugs

Hello All,

I have been super excited to make these sharpie mugs for months and now that I have I have a few tips for you. Check your oven temperature before you start, just because your oven says 350 doesn’t mean it is. Every oven is different so just because 350 worked for me doesn’t mean it will for you. If you live in a higher climate or a lower one it will affect your backing time.

So these are the Pro’s and Con’s I got with my sharpie mugs.

  1. After looking at a few tutorials, some crafters said 275 others 425 degree. And baked time ranged from 1 hour to 30 minutes. I did mine at 350 for 30 minutes.
  2. If you wait for your mugs cool down in your oven there is higher chance to over bake so be mindful you don’t burn your art work.
  3. Don’t use regular sharpies with oil base sharpies. Regular sharpies will was away with in two hand washes. And wipe way in one wash in the dish washer. Even after baking it.
  4. Don’t be afraid to make mistakes just make sure you don’t use expensive mugs. Dollar mugs are great as testers.
