We've seen the idea floating around on Pinterest; ceramic mug + Sharpie markers + bake for 30 minutes at 350 = custom mugs!

Step 2: Draw your design on the plastic with the permanent marker.

Step 3: Sand the back of your image. Step 4: Color the sanded side of the plastic with colored pencil. View of the back of the piece after it is completely colored in.
