I have a solid colored mug that I bought. I would like to transfer an image onto the mug and was wondering what a good way to do this. The image is one color and kind of complex. Any ideas would be appreciated.

This is the image (I will make the words and outlines black, all the yellow and blue areas would be negative space) just for an idea.

This is definitely not the easiest idea, I am sure, but I would print the picture out in the size you would want and poke small holes through it. Then take a ceramic pen and mark out the outlines. Simply trace the dots and follow the pen directions!

Like I said, there may be an easier way, but I don't know of one...

Best wishes, though! can't wait to see the results!
