How Do You Permanently Paint A Mug?

Written by Tara

No, not right out of the gate. You can’t wash them in the dishwasher nor should you microwave them. Baking them only darkens the nail polish (sometimes to a color that is very unappealing) so don’t bother with that either. These are meant to be hand wash only โ€“ but you can seal them with Mod Podge.

How to:

  1. Your mug is your canvas. Wash and dry your mug for the best result!
  2. Decorate your mugs with the paint markers of your choice.
  3. Allow drying.
  4. Set the oven to 350 degrees.
  5. Bake mugs in the oven for 1 hour to set the paint.
  6. Now your mugs are ready to use and completely dishwasher safe!
