DIY Personalised Cup

These are great for fairly cheap Christmas/ Birthday gifts with a personal touch. 

These DIY personalised cups are fairly easy to do, there are lots of tutorials/ reviews of Sharpie cups however I used the Marabu Porcelaine Pens, to get a definite finish. I just don't see how the Sharpie pens last very long once the cups etc. have been washed a few times.. I got mine from Ebay for a few quid, however they are available at craft stores. 



So to begin with you want to have a clean cup, any colour or finish, gloss works best. I just look for a design or come up with a cool idea in my head and draw it on the cup in pencil as shown below. 


Once you're happy, go over the design with the Porcelaine pen . I let it dry for 24 hours or more, then follow the instructions on the pen; cook in the oven at 170°C for 30 minutes and let cool in the oven.


Wipe the cup clean and voil√† you have a dishwasher safe personalised cup. 

Here are a few I have done before.






For the watercolour cup see my DIY Watercolour Cup Blog. 

Please note that these pens aren't limited to just cups.....
