This is a great project for creating custom designs on your mugs that can double up as a heatproof coaster! In this project we will show you how to create the grass and flowers design above, but see step 6 for some more inspiration.
Sugru is ideal for this project because:
It's soft to the touch but also grippy
It has great heat resistant properties
It is available in the primary colours, meaning you can mix whatever colour you like!
It makes a super strong bond with ceramics
It is dishwasher proof
In this Instructable we will show you how to create the grass and flowers design at the top. With three packs of sugru (which you'll need to get all the colours) you can easily do this to two mugs. You'll just need to work efficiently to finish them while the sugru is still malleable.
sugru is not certified as food safe - make sure your design does not come in to contact with the top rim where people will be drinking from the mug.
