Hello  Smiley
I need help for painting on ceramic and porcelain mugs (without a kiln).
Is it possible to paint them with acrylic colors? Once painted, what should be done?
I'm doing a research on the web but i'm confused, i'd love if you could help me.
Thank you  Cheesy

Some suggestions on painting ceramic without using the kiln (or at minimum, just using your regular oven):

The first one is the porcelain paint pens and here's a link to the Dick Blick site:
I've seen them in Michaels and even Walmart but I don't remember what exactly they have (cause I've never actually used them myself and can't tell you much more about them, sorry!)....  BUT....  this lady has some info on her blog about painting

Second is using acrylic paint and sealing it with a transparent plastic sealant spray.  It's doable but not permanent at all; most likely will come off with washing.  I would also be concerned about any food coming in contact with it as the sealant might not be food safe (you'd have to check the spray).  If you have glass paint, enamel or outdoor paint, it may not need the sealant. 

The last is the newest rage with using Sharpie and other permanent markers then baking them in the oven for some permanence.  I've heard mixed reviews on this.... and mixed directions! 
so here are two links that seem to hold some great info such as the big important one.... use the oil based paint pens if you go this route or don't expect it to be very permanent.  The one blog suggested a higher baking temp and allowing the markers to sit on the surface for 24 hrs before even baking them. 

Good luck and hope this helped!  Let me know if you need any other info Smiley
