  • Do not paint the drinking edges of the mug. Store the markers horizontally.

How it is done:

  • Clean the mug with an abrasive cleaner and a sponge before painting. Then rub off any finger prints with Marabu Cleaner or white spirit. Do not use a dishwasher for pre-cleaning.
  • Trace the lettering onto tracing paper using a soft pencil. Then trace the lettering onto the back of the paper again.
  • Place the paper on the mug, fix the edges with masking tape and rub the motif firmly several times using a hard object such as the back of a knife or a brush handle.
  • Shake the markers well with the cap on. Pump by slowly pressing down the tip several times until the ink shows. Test the markers on paper first.
  • Then paint directly onto the mug. Leave the paint to dry for 4 hours.
  • Fire the mug in a non-preheated oven for 30 minutes at 160 °C. Leave to cool down in the oven. The mug is now dishwasher safe up to 50 °C.
