Mr. and Mrs. Mugs: A Lesson

 Here's what happened...I pinned my first attempt at these Mr. and Mrs. Mugs on Pinterest.  My pin started to get comments about how the permanent marker doesn't last through regular washing despite being baked.

This turn of events threw me into a small panic. 
 After some deliberation, I decided to use a detail paintbrush and black acrylic paint (that is meant to be baked) to make another set. 
 Now, I know the design will hold up.

 I learned a couple of things.  One, apparently I can write pretty well with a detail paintbrush.  Two, I am very proud of myself about that (can't you tell?).

The third thing I learned, is that so far the permanent marker is holding up after the first wash, as reported by my good sport of a niece.
And finally, this is what you can expect from your crazy aunt who has a blog.
Class dismissed.


   I have an idea!  Follow me on Google+ ...thanks!
