"Gold sharpie marker, bake at 350 for 30 min and let cool in oven"
Oh yes, the infamous sharpie on glassware posts. Anyone who is a long time follower of such blogs like Pinstrosity will know that really, sharpie + glass + baking does NOT equal long lasting dishware.
That aside, this isn't what this is an image of. At all. These aren't just mugs that have been colored with a sharpie and baked . They're professional made, and sold at Luna Lighting for £22 a pop.
But you have a lot of boring old white dishes you snagged cheap at the dollar store and you want to make them a bit fancy, so what do you do?
Toss the sharpie and spend a bit more on ceramic markers. They do the job better, as that's what they are designed for. Most craft and hobby stores carry them. They usually run about $6-$15 a piece depending on brand, but you're more likely to have success using them then you would using a sharpie.
