This post will show you how to use Infusible Ink markers and pens to make a design on a mug. In addition, I’ll explain the benefits of making a test mug before you make any project!
Last winter, I made this mug using Infusible Ink markers:
No tutorials, nothing, just for fun (we all need time off sometimes!!)
I still posted the photo on Facebook, because I wanted to show how the colours of the pen had not come out as I expected! At least, for the green!!!
I then had tons of questions! But it was this one that came up most often: “What material does it take to use the Infusible ink pens and how does it work?”
Make a test mug
After my experience above, I decided that making myself a nice pen holder with a test mug would be a great idea!
And good news for you, I have the file, completely ready in Design Space if you want to make the same thing!

- A cutting machine (I have the Cricut Maker, but the Explore Air can do the trick. The Joy can also be used but the pens will not be the same since the pens for the Maker and Explore do not work with the Joy)
- Cricut Blue Mat (light grip)
- Laser copy paper
- Infusible Ink pens (the file was designed with these):
- Cricut Mug Press
- Mug 12 oz
- Heat-resistant tape
- Easy Press Mat (optional)
- Free Cricut file available directly in Design Space
