Baked Sharpie Mug – Pinterest FAIL!

You’ve seen it all over pinterest. The amazing claim that you can draw on a dollar store mug with a sharpie and bake it for 30 minutes on 350 then VOILA! You magically have this awesomely custom mug. Well pinterest I’m onto you and you’re little crafty lies. This one is not true. I’ve tried it three different times and sorry folks it DOES NOT WORK. (Here’s how to actually make it work.)

I was so excited to try this because I have a large collection of multi colored sharpies. So I made these two adorable mugs, and I was so pleased with how they turned out!

The design on the left is what happened after a light washing. It even rubbed off without soap and water, just rubbing my finger over the design smudged it.

A good solid scrubbing took the image off completely. Survey says: This one’s a doozie.
