Step 1: To Do a DIY Chameleon Mug You Need!!!

In today’s video I am going to share an interesting idea about how to make a DIY chameleon mug or as many call it thermo mug or heat transfer mug. The secret of making the DIY mug is in the thermochromic dye which gets transparent at temperatures higher than 31C. You will only have to paint out your picture on your mug with the black thermochromic dye, pour in some hot water and watch the black colour disappear and your picture appear.

Step 2: A 10 Gram Bag of the Thermochromic Dye Is Enough for Making Lots of DIY Mugs at Home.

That is why you 10 dollars will pay off right after your first or second mug.

Step 3: Let’s Get Started!

    Step 1: buy thermochromic Dye. Step 2: Follow instructions on the package. All this article was good for was letting me know that such a dye exists.
