    who would have thought you could do all that with a sharpie marker? I love they come in so many colors now though I’m such a sucker for colored pens/markers lol

    I wonder if the metallic sharpie (like the gold on the mug) can be put in the microwave. Any ideas?

      If you write with Sharpie on a mug and bake it (some say 10 min at 350 others say 20 @ 350) if is dishwasher and micrwave safe.

        my experience is clean object with alcohol first,Then put object in oven, turn on @ 450 degrees let the completed object heat up with oven bake for 1 hr @ 450 then let cool down in oven for 24hrs or overnight then remove.it is dishwasher safe

    On the mugs, I’ve heard from a lot of people that normal sharpies DO NOT work. Use an oil based sharpie or porcelain marker :)

      True. I actually use Sharpie to mark dishes when I take something to a potluck, as well as on glass carafes and jugs at parties. Comes off with dish-soap and barely any elbow grease! As the post notes, oil-based Sharpies may work better, haven’t tried :)

    I like the Sharpie lampshade and frame. I know it would look in my apartment because it actually kinda looks like my home’s theme.

    Has anyone had any luck with the mug/plate idea?? I did some at Christmas and after baking, it washed right off. Tried doing artwork and waiting 24 hrs then baking, tried baking longer, tried handwashing, tried EVERYTHING!! Would love to find a solution. Help!

      Have you ever looked into Sharpie paint pens? Theyre literally paint in a marker or try to find a high heat clear spray paint to go over it.

        paint pens didn’t work for me on the plates. :(

        Oh no, Charlene! What a disappointment! I have heard mixed reviews on success, but I can’t seem to pinpoint the reasoning why some of them work and some don’t.

    Also, the phone one will rub off eventually after normal daily use:(

    Love Sharpies, too! Use them with my older kids in my art room all the time. They look pretty amazing on foil, too.

    The one thing I did not see is a decorated sharpie, ie literally sharpie another sharpie so you have an interesting writing/drawing/designing utensil. Also for all that love sharpies and all there many uses and so many different colors in many varieties I believ we its time for use to let our voices be heard in a way of nee suggestions of where to take them next & I do believe that if they entered into new markets to they’d be equally successful as with all gheir other great ideas so I propose Sharpie Glitter markers, then also Sharpie Blow markers ( where the marker is in the center and a blow tube or straw surrounds the entire center and open at both ends so yoh then blow thru the top end thus wisking away just enough ink at once to go onto the paper or whatever substrate your doing it on, thus making the artwork have a spray paint look) or one last idea would be why dont they dive into a gel type ink for markers and not just pens. Actually being into the sign business my self I would really like to see some sort of solvent or eco-solvent markersbecause that type of Ink last so much better in sunlight and all around and thus far the cheapest solution for solvent based ink is buying expensive $8,000+ wide format printers. Sorry for such a lengthy comment but hope you all get something out of it. Tom

    Just a warning – some of the Sharpies (particularly black) are NOT light proof. I marked the spines of my books with dewey numbers. Now, 10 years later and moving into a new home, I am having to go back and re-do them with black paint pens because the sharpie has faded.
