Attaching items to mugs?

I would like to make myself a bespoke steampunk-esque mug using metal clockwork gears and cogs.  I've tried to find what I want ready made but nothing is quite right. What would be the best adhesive to use that would withstand regular use with hot drinks (we're talking at least a dozen cups of tea a day, I'm British) and would be dishwasher safe? I also suspect I may need to seal the pieces once stuck on, what is good for that? Thanks.

How to put a design on a metal cup?

Hey Guys! So I'm a bit new to this (meaning I'm totally new.) So I'm not sure if this question has been asked before,. If it has, please redirect me to it :) I'm looking to 'personalise' a metal traveller's mug, and just metal mugs in general and i was wondering what options are available? I want to go through the options before i pick the method that i'll use. What i want to do exactly is to put my design on the cup permanently. I've seen someone use a vinyl decal and a powder coating machine, but that's pretty expensive to get over here. So what are the other ways i can do that?  I hope someone can shed some light on this for me, Thanks :)
