Hi there!  I admit I'm pretty much a noob to most ceramic and glass arts, but bubblegum_phoenix's awesome WoW coffee mug has inspired me to try to create a Horde version for my WoW-fanatic bf for Christmas.  However, I don't have a kiln or anything, so does anyone know if there are any "no kiln required" ceramic/ glass paints I could use?  We don't currently have a dishwasher, so it doesn't have to be something that's "dishwasher safe", but I would prefer something reasonably durable, 'cause he's pretty hard on stuff . . .

I know if the ceramic is already fired you can use acrylic paints on it, but I don't believe that it is food safe.

In the many years I worked with ceramics all food stuff was glazed (needing to be fired after painting).

You best bet would be to find a paint your own ceramics place that has mugs.

Apple Barrel Gloss, FolkArt Enamels, Pebeo paints..any of these can be 'fired' in the oven. Hand washing is recommended, though they may be top-rack dishwasher safe. I don't believe any of them are food safe, so just make sure you don't paint the lip of the mug.

If you're in the US, Hobby Lobby usually has FolkArt while I only find Apple Barrel and Pebeo at Michael's.
