The first thing you want to do is place the wood grain stencil on top of the mug.

The stencil will stick to the surface so you don’t have to hold it… How awesome is that?

The second step is as easy as coloring inside the lines with your permanent marker.

I used a metallic gold color for mine.

If you make a mistake dip a Q-tip in alcohol and gently erase the areas that you don’t like.

When you are happy with the look it is time to bake the design so becomes permanent.

Place the mug inside of the unheated oven and heat it to 400˚.  

After the oven reaches 400˚ bake for an additional 30 minutes.

Turn off the oven and let the mug cool down inside until it reaches room temperature.  

This will prevent the mug from cracking due to rapid changes of temperature.
