Thompson’s Water Seal from Lowe’s which isor sealing terra cotta pots so they can be painted. $4 Spray it all along the inside of the pot (the sides and the base) and it locks the moisture in so it can’t seep through and cause your paint to bubble or peel. A few thin coats will look like the pots have just absorbed it all when they dry (they don’t appear to be darker or shiny afterwords).
I've been looking into this Sharpie mug 350 degrees craft and it looks as though many people have been experiencing fading or the colors coming off altogether. Therefore, I would like to share this bloggers page. She explains to the tee how she cooked her mug at 425 for 30 minutes and then left the mug to cool in the oven. The results: a permanent cup at last! Check this out!
