My Festive Mug

My Christmas Mug 1
As soon as December begins everyone in the offices at work starts using their Festive Mug.  Some people use the same one, but I like to have a new one every year.  And this year I’ve painted my own.
Mug Painting pens
I’ve had to keep it simple as I only have three mug painting pens!
My Christmas Mug
I have really had to quell the urge to add flat back gems to my creation as I am not sure what glue could stand up to the 6/7 cups of coffee a day!

The pens in the picture do require baking - I allowed about 24 hrs for the design to dry completely and then baked in the oven for 20 minutes. The instructions are on the pens - if a little tiny! HobbyCraft also have similar pens that don't even need baking now, from the same manufacturers.

When you use those pens do you have to bake it in the oven to set it? The colours have come out lovely.
