I recently got some custom printed mugs for some company or the other... a dozen of them, I thought they would be a different design, so now I don't know what to do with them... anyone have any knowledge of how to take off the custom printing? not sure if they're just printed, or if they're glazed... if glazed, don't think I can scrape off the design, but maybe I can cover? dunno... HELP!

If you can't get the glaze off... maybe you could cover them somehow (paint, magazine clippings with modge podge), put some potting soil in them, plant some seeds and when the flowers start to bloom give them to people as gifts?

if it is not glaze try nail polish remover, the one with acetone in it

try using sandpaper to get it back down to the white bisque pottery. Then you can re paint or do what you want with a "clean canvas"

You could always paint over them. The art supply store near me sells small bottles of glass paint for about a dollar fifty. You let air dry for 24 hours, them bake it for 30 minutes at 350 or so, this supposedly makes them dishwasher safe.I just painted my first mug,but gave it to someone,so I can't swear it holds up-but it's supposed to.And I have no artistic talent! But it was fun to do.

People who take time to be alone usually have depth, originality, and quiet reserve.
