How to use Infusible Ink pens on a mug

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!

I'm confused. Do you mean the 30 count Markers 1.0 or the 30 count Pens at 0.4? I have searched and there are no 30 count Pens 1.0. If using the link above it takes you to the 30 count markers 1.0. Please clarify.

Yes, the link above takes you to the 30 markers 1.0 and this is what I used. But the 0.4 box also exists. You can do the project with either.

Hadn't thought to make a design to be able to sample the pens and their actual color, so that is brilliant. And it makes a great example of a pen holder for those stray extra pens or *heaven forbid* non-cricut pens for sublimation.....
