Warm cup of tea ^_^
For my friend's birthday she wanted a gift voucher but I couldn't help but make something for her :D I wrote a haiku and copied it onto the mug.

Inside I put the gift voucher a couple of teabags and some biscuits.

the haiku reads:

One thin wisp of steam
and all my cares fade away
drowned in my teacup

  • How to make a cup / mug. Personalized Mug - Step 1
    Step 1

    Preheat the oven at 300 degrees Fahrenheit. (150 degrees Celcius)

    Draw a picture or write a nice sentiment onto your mug and let dry.

    Once dry, bake it for 35 minutes and take it out of the oven. IT IS VERY VERY HOT!!! let it cool down at least 30 minutes, the design fixes this way.

    (if you can still wipe it off, bake it again)

175 degrees was recommended but the ink didn’t fix so I just tried to bake it at an degree where it would (I guess it depends on the sort pottery) My advice is to just try it and if you can still wipe it off when baking at 220 degrees at least it has been a fun experiment, I think... of course it would be so much more fun if the experiment succeeds. Good luck!

Love it Eve! Will it still fix if the oven is less hot do you think? Mine only goes up to about 250/220. xx
