A way to really tell someone what you think about them
Don't be scared by the 6 hour time allotment, that's just how long it will be from when you start to when you can actually play with it. It sits in the oven cooling for most of that time and the actual "work" portion of this project took me less than 20 minutes.

    Trace your stencil on card stock to spell out whatever you want. I chose a Valentines theme so I went with 'Love'.

    I couldn't resist the urge to be a little naughty, so I made a 'Hate' stencil too.

    Cut out, carefully, your stencil.

    Go ahead and start filling it in with whatever color of Sharpie you want to use. It does have to be sharpie though,

    Step 8

    Place in a cold oven. Then set the oven to 350 F and let cook for 30 minutes. If you pre-heat your oven you run the risk of shattering your cup in the oven due to the temperature difference.

    Once the 30 minutes are up turn off your oven but leave the cup in there to cool as the oven cools. I left mine over night, but in theory you wouldn't have to do that.

did the print come off your mug after a few washes? I did a few mugs (followed the instructions) and the ink started coming off little by little.

I've been hand washing mine very carefully and leaving it to dry. It does eventually wear though. You could always put a glaze on it to keep it in place better.
