Nerd Crafts: DIY Doctor Who Mug

I made a Doctor Who mug for my sister in law for Christmas this year and decided I wanted one for my own.  With my birthday coming up, I decided to make one as a gift for myself.  The mug was purchased at IKEA for $2.99.  They did have one for .99 cents, but I liked the shape of this one better.

*White mug

Step one:  I practiced on paper drawing the TARDIS and quotes.  Then I got out my Sharpies and went to town.  If you mess up, it is easy to wipe off.  

Step two:  When I had it how I liked it, I baked it in the oven on 450 for 30 minutes   This was WAY too long!!  Next time I would do it at 350.  When I took the mug out, the blue was completely faded!  So as you can see here I had to re-draw over it and was over it at that point, but you get the picture.

It was super easy to do and I have used it once already.  When washing try not to scrub the outside too much and do not put it in the dishwasher.
