Clean mugs with rubbing alcohol before stenciling. Once a design is stenciled, remove stencil while paint is wet; wash stencil and store on package backer sheet. Completed projects must cure before using. Let mugs dry overnight, then bake to cure. Place mugs in cool oven; set oven to 350° and bake for 30 minutes. Turn oven off and allow mugs and oven to cool. Remove when completely cool.
