does anyone know of a way to decorate a mug that I bought. It has already been glazed (pink on the outside and green interior) and I'm afraid if I try something it might mess up when it is washed or microwaved. I was thinking of putting an image on it using clear finger nail polish or painting something on it.If you have a suggestion on how to go about applying anything on it I would be most greatful.  Kiss

there are ceramic paints at places like michael's, but i think you have to bake them so that they won't wash off.

i saw an idea a short while ago that i'm loving- taking plain ceramic glazed mugs and applying polka dots with etching cream to create a matte contrast. i can't remember where i aw them, but they would look really cute with those mugs that have one color inside and another outside.

you are not the boss of me

I've had a lot of success with Liquitex brand Glossies seen here: http://www.liquitex.com/Products/paintglossies.cfm
I've decorate a ton of mugs, some glassware, and a metal belt buckle all with great results.  They do need to be baked, but it's not at a very high temp - do follow the baking and washing directions tho. 
I've found the paints at most art stores where Liquitex is sold (pretty much everywhere) and at craft stores. 

DIY of all kinds.
