Father’s Day 2012


  1. HI, thanks for the tutorial!!
    I was wondering are these dishwasher safe? I have tried to do this but the drawings still smudge off. Maybe im using the wrong kind of sharpie? I will try again today with a better permanant marker.
    The kids had so much fun drawing on the mugs and are so excited to give them as fathers day pressents, so hopefully my second attempt will work.

    • We tested this out to make sure it worked before we got the children to do it. We found that if you touched it straight after it smudged a bit but if you let it cool completely it was fine. You have to use permanent markers in the Sharpie brand. We washed our sample mug in warm soapy water and it was fine. We didn’t test it in the dishwasher. We did find that some of the lighter colours like pink and yellow faded a little when we baked them. Hope that’s helpful.

      **EDIT: One dad put his in the dishwasher and it faded almost completely off.**
