Decorated mugs

These decorated mugs look great, and are so simple to make. Copy these eyelash and cactus mugs or channel your creativity to draw a design of your own – you could even personalise it especially for your dad.  This project uses a porcelain pen, but a black sharpie will also do the job (once decorated, leave to dry for 24 hours if possible, place in the oven, turn the oven on to around 170 degrees celsius, bake for 30 minutes, switch the oven off and remove the mug once completely cooled).
