I tape a piece of painters tape to the very top as a design placement. You don’t want the design where they’re going to drink out of the mug. Give it about a 1″ down or use the tape method like I did.

Center the stencil where you like it, then peel the back and stick it down.

Tape all four sides of the stencil down for added security. It also helps to prevent overran paint brush strokes.

Ready to paint

It’s time to paint the stencil. I painted the letter “T” with the color of Licorice with the Forkart Multi-Surface paint. Allow to dry. It takes a few hours to dry. Then carefully remove the tape and peel the stencil off.

Bake in an oven at 130 degrees for 45 minutes. Leave the mug in the oven to cool down an hour or two before opening the oven door.

Directions also state that you can air dry for 21 days before washing.

After baking the mugs are dishwasher safe. However, it suggests hand washing to keep the paint looking fresh and new looking.

***If there is more then one person in the household with the same initial then use multiple colors. For example, I had multiple names that start with the letter “A” so I used green, blue and black paint. Each person could identify which mug was theirs.
