An Update on Muggings

An Update on Muggings

Remember when I was talking about doing those hand-painted mugs?  And remember how I pulled the plug on that project because the internet is full of liars? Well, I think I found the problem and fixed it. Just to be clear, the original internet legend says that you're supposed to be able to use oil-based Sharpie brand pens to create awesome designs on already-glazed porcelain.  The advice they give, though, is that "the cheaper the glaze, the better it sticks."
