If you wanna have a cool creative mug, you just need some imagination and a plain white mug, two different sized paint brushes and a few porcelain paint colors. You actually only need a few since you can mix colors to make other colors. Sharpie markers and regular paint will wash off in the dishwasher. Make sure you wash your paint brushes in between each color. Once you are all finished let your mug dry for 24 hours and then bake in an oven for 35 minutes at 300 degrees. This sets the paint and will make it dishwasher safe. This way will make your morning cup of tea or coffee very original, it will raise your spirits and you will be ready for a new working day.
