The woman at the art supply shop said I could use acrylic paint on plastic.I have a big mug I'd like to stencil.Should I seal it also? With what?I know it definetely wouldn't be dishwasher safe,but do you think it would hold up to handwashing? Of course,I won't paint around the rim.Has anyone done anything like this? I guess it could always be used for pencils or a flowerpot,but I'd like it to be used as a mug if I can.
If you see this Alana,you still don't know just how else I'm decorating it,or the nifty things I'm planning to fill it with,bwah ha ha.
Any crafty advise deeply appreciated!

If the mug is plastic use Plaid's Paint For Plastic. You can find it at any craft store in the craft paint aisle. Once the paint is 'cured' it is permanent so you will be able to use your mug for drinking out of and also be able to gently hand wash it. I have used this paint on that acrylic picnic ware you see at every store during the summer months and the paint holds up beautifully.
Even though the paint is non-toxic you should keep your painted design about an inch below the rim so your mouth doesn't touch it when in use. Other than that follow the instructions on the bottle and your good to go.     Smiley
Here is a link to more info on the paint:
