Hah, you're a hoot! Demanding ceramics, indeed.
I love it. You did a great job covering it up; all I could see was the "a." You've inspired me to make one for my sister's birthday this month. I drew up a design that I was especially proud of but then I got stuck - how do you apply the stencil to the cup? Nevermind, I figured it out. Smiley Annnnd I'm almost done, yay!

oOo I didn't post it cuz I didn't want to steal your thunder but here goes.
I think I used the same paint you did. Unlike you, I didn't do a very good job photographing it hah. (Maybe I just feel the need to destroy things, but I tried scratching the paint off after baking it to see how well it holds up. If you did the same, did yours scratch off a little?) In any case, it's not nearly as good as yours, but I'm not much of an artist anyway.

no way it turned out great!!

I did scratch at mine a little when I baked it and the paint didn't budge. I also let it cook longer than the instructions said and left it a very long time to cool.

Aw thanks Smiley
Hmmm I followed the directions to a T. I let it sit in the oven while it was heating up and while it was cooling down, until the cup was cool to the touch again, and baked it exactly as long as it said to. So I think next time I should keep that in mind...bake it longer. I've never put ceramics (or paint!) in the oven, so I was worried I would screw it up somehow.
Anyhoo, you're awsome and such an inspiration so thanks  Grin

thank you! I'm a firm believer that directions were made to be tweaked Smiley granted I've probably almost seriously injured or killed myself a time or 2 by ignoring directions (or warning labels) but I'm richer for the experience.

I love the mug! You guys are so creative on here!

I'm wanting to create some black and white damask plates for dessert stands at my wedding. Would you guys suggest the paint pen or the paint for my project? Which do you think would be easier to work with?

What a great project!  I have always wanted to try that paint but never worked up the nerve, but now that I know yours didn't scratch off ... maybe I'll have to try it!  Thanks for the inspiration.
