I was inspired to make these cute guys when I saw these matching teacups at a thrift store.
Then I took a Michael’s run to pick up a glass paint pen.

What I ended up doing was sketching the faces on a piece of paper, then I drew them onto the mugs with the glass paint pen.
You know how Pinterest has those popular posts about using a Sharpie to draw on mugs or plates or whatever then bake them in the oven? Yeah that doesn’t work. The ink washes off.
The best thing to use is a glass paint pen. It actually does what it’s supposed to.
Just follow the directions on the packaging, because it’ll probably differ from brand to brand.
They’ll be so adorable, right? I can’t wait to sip some of my favorite tea out of them on a Saturday morning.
