How to Do DIY ‘Sharpie’ Art Coffee Mugs…THE RIGHT WAY!

Ok, I just have to rant for a moment here.  I am SO tired of seeing these pins on pinterest and blog posts about using a sharpie to draw designs on a cup. Supposedly, you just get a sharpie, draw, then bake the cup in the oven. I am here to tell you IT DOES NOT WORK THAT WAY. I don’t understand why people keep perpetuating this notion, but sharpies are not permanent on dishes. What’s worse is that there is a way to do this project that actually IS permanent, but no one ever talks about it! And it just kills me that people keep posting these cups saying “Oh, it’s so easy!” Doing it the right way is just as easy! So today, I’m showing you how to make a sharpie art cup the right way.


  • coffee mug  $1-3
  • glass paint marker $3
  • gloves $0-4


  • rubbing alcohol (to fix mistakes)
  • cotton swabs (to fix mistakes)
