DIY Father's Day Mug

It's my husbands first fathers day, so I thought it would be fitting to do the traditional DIY present from his son. The Sharpie pen tutorials on porcelain always catch my eye but I read they dont last and I didn't want all Jack's precious art work rubbing off. For the mug pictured I used a standard white mug from the supermarket and Pebeo Porcelaine markers. I was inspired by this latte quote found on Pinterest and I added my husbands coffee order to the inside base. Unfortunately I smudged a few bits as working on the glaze is slippery and the pens are very runny so take extra care. Hope everyone has an enjoyable Father's Day with their families. We're taking a longweekend in the countryside.
