How to seal acrylic paint on coffee mugs
Here are instructions for how to make the paint on the mug permanent:
✅ Make sure that the surface is thoroughly clean, use rubbing alcohol. Don't forget to remove all price stickers; otherwise, they will burn when you bake the mug.
✅Also make sure there are no things made of flammable materials attached things to the cup or glass, so it doesn’t catch on fire!
✅ Once you are happy with your acrylic mug painting design, let it air dry for 24 hours before baking. This will ensure proper adhesion of the design to the surface.
✅ After it is fully dry, place your acrylic mug painting project into a cold oven.
✅ Turn the oven to 350˚F (180˚C).
✅ Set a timer for 1 hour.
✅ Once the hour is up, turn off the oven.
✅ Open the oven and let the acrylic mug painting project cool down completely before removing.
Hand-washing in warm water is the best option to wash the surface. We do not recommend using a dishwasher or a heavy-duty sponge. Remember, there is always a chance to scratch the paint, so be extra careful with the acrylic mug painting project!
