Sharpie decorating ideas

There’s been an ongoing discussion about making sharpie patterns last forever (especially on jars, mugs and plates).
I used some of the pinterest tips while making my christmas mugs.

DIY Sharpie Christmas Mugs
Did my mugs survive 6 months of washing?
(First of all, I need to stress that I took them out of the oven earlier than advised and I haven’t tried washing them in dishwasher so far).
Silver one looks good, but the image is slowly getting more and more shabby. Brown one barely lasted a month.
Maybe some colors last longer than others, or maybe it was because gold & brown sharpies (although completely new), seemed a bit dry in the first place. Also, my cheap mugs seemed to be better quality than I expected.
What will I do next time?
1. I’ll use fair amount of sharpie! Spots where the layer of sharpie is the thickest, look the best.
2. I’ll use even cheaper mugs!
3. I won’t buy sharpies over internet. I’ll try all sharpies out before buying.

Happy Crafting :)
