I did this tutorial for DIY Sharpie Mugs. I baked it for the correct times, all that fun stuff.

I was afraid of them smudging when I made them. As it turns out, I was right to be nervous. They smudge and it wipes off completely.

Anyone have a suggestion for a sealant? Or just... A food safe sealant if I use acrylic paint next time?

My advice is to spring for the paint that's made for this craft, Porcelaine or whatever its called.  They make pens too, not just paint.  Think about it, buying sharpies and then sealant, or just buying the right kind of paint in the first place. 


That being said, thanks for posting this!  I suspected the sharpie mug craft was dubious...

Actually, that's what ended up happening! I bought a few different brands of the ceramic paint pens to try. Smiley
