I love to use Oil Based Markers. They are perfect for glass and I wanted to create some patriotic glassware for the 4th of July.

I found some mason jar mugs at the Goodwill and decided to create some patriotic glassware using my (affiliate link) Oil Based Sharpie Markers

I can draw a basic 5 point star so I drew stars in red, white, and blue and gray all over the glasses and colored them in so they were solid stars, not outlines.

If you look closely you can see that I also added some dots in random places around the stars. Just to fill in a little more space.

When they were exactly as I wanted I put them on a cookie sheet and placed them in the cool oven. Then I baked them at 200 degrees for an hour. After the hour I turned off the oven but the glasses stayed in until the oven was completely cool.

The baking sets the paint but I would not consider them to be dishwasher safe. Washing by hand is best.
