DIY: Make Your Own Print On A Cup

It's actually tremendously easy once you're got the things you need to do it.

  • Frist of all, you need one or more cups or mugs with a clean, not painted or printed surface. I recommend buying a plain cup for a dollar so you can practice before "going live".

  • Then you need to go out and buy a porcelaine pen in the colour you want to paint your cup with. Of course you can buy more than one colour if that's what you want to do on your cup or mug. I bought mine at a crafts store for 6 bucks, so they're not as expensive as you might think.

  • Now here's what you do: Clean the cups or mugs, let them dry off and then just start painting whatever you want. When you're done, let the paint on the mugs or cups dry for four hours before putting them in the oven and let them heat for 90 minutes at 320 degrees. After the 90 minutes is up, let the mugs or cups cool off for a bit in the oven. Then just take them out, clean them and voilĂ , now you have your very own homemade printed cups!
