Painting Mugs

I've got a box full of mugs. I was hoping to transfer my butterfly illustrations to them using special ink jet paper, but they did not work out. :[ However I do have a rainbow of porcelain painting pens, and I've started doodling some cute patterns onto them.
Tip: Make sure the surface you are painting is clean and dry before you start drawing and plan to do one side at a time so the colour is facing up while it dries and doesn't dribble down the mug.

I'm personalizing the inside too. Everyone (in the UK at least) has their own idea of a good cup of tea. I'm particularly particular, so this a friendly - bossy, reminder of how I like it!
