Remember all of those tutorials where you draw on a mug with Sharpie and show off your creativity while sipping a hot cup of coffee? I think that if you’re here, then you’re crafty so you probably either made your own, or you at least saw this craft fad explode with every blogger making their own version. I know that I did.
We tried in vain to keep our designs on our mugs. Hand wash only – we said. But even a few hand washings later or designs started to disappear. Or if you’re like me you completely forgot the hand wash bit of things and lost your design the first time you mistakenly tossed it into the dishwasher.
Looking for another alternative I found that most of the things I could do required some super fancy equipment. Like a kiln. Now I don’t know about you but something as expensive as that does not enter into my craft budget so that I can make a few mugs here and there.
I guess that’s why I am so freakin’ stoked that iLoveToCreate has made some ceramic paint pens that actually ARE DISHWASHER SAFE!!! Oh and they are also FOOD SAFE meaning you can draw inside of your mugs, too! How nifty is that bit o’ business?
