I have done projects in which I've baked sculpey clay right onto glassware (i.e. a wine glass) by putting the unbaked sculpey right onto the wine glass and putting the whole shebang into the oven. It worked nicely; the clay fused right to the glass.  What would happen - does anyone know? - if I tried to do the same thing with a store-bought ceramic coffee mug?

Help appreciated! Thanks.

I repaired a ceramic sugar holder  I use to hold teabags that was cracked and had a chip missing using polymer clay several years ago that has held up quite well- however I only hand wash it and it doesn't hold hot liquid like a coffee mug does-

You can bake the clay right on the mug. If you surround the mug (like a stripe that goes through the handle) it should just form a mechanical hold (no bonding agent just the shape holds it on). If its more like a medallion you can bake it on the mug and pop it off afterwards and glue it on with superglue or E6000. If you don't pop the medallion off it will fall off eventually. Like Teag said, hand wash it, no dishwasher.  And remember polymer souldn't cover the lip of the mug, it shouldn't be used where it will contact food.

You can also bake on ceramic it won't hurt anything as its a high fire clay. I have however found if you don't cover the item completely with polymer clay there is a better chance it will fall off, so you may need to use some glue first. I have used Sobo glue successfully. Also if you are going to put hot liquid in the mug it could also make the clay come off. Just something to think about.
