Hello! Samantha here with you today. I'm really excited that SRM now has dishwasher safe vinyl. I have a collection of fun coffee mugs, and I'm a bit of a sci fi geek. Thanks to SRM's Oracle Dishwasher Safe Vinyl I got to combine those two things in this dishwasher safe Tardis mug.
Can I see a show of hands for all my fellow Dr. Who fans?!? Love this show, but I haven't come across a mug I really wanted (or when I'd find one it was really expensive) so I decided to make my own.
I picked up this cool cool mug for about $4. It looks hand thrown, but is actually from a retail chain store and is dishwasher and microwave safe. Then, all I needed was some dishwasher safe vinyl, transfer tape, and a way to cut my vinyl (I love my Silhouette Cameo, but you can use any digital die cutting machine to create your designs).
I washed my mug, and wiped the area I was going to add my vinyl to with an alcohol wipe. You don't have to use and alcohol pad to prep the area, but I wanted to make sure that my surface was as clean as possible since it's a bit lumpy and bumpy.
I've washed my 3 times now, and it looks just as good as the day I made it - no peeling, bubbling, or warping. I'm in love with this dishwasher safe vinyl, now the only question is what should I make next?!?
