This past Christmas, I tested this as I was making several mugs for sisters, sisters-in-law, parents, and grandparents. I had an assortment of mugs, and I tested as I went to figure out the perfect formula for getting the mugs right. Without a doubt, the mugs that did NOT do well were the very shiny, lots-of-glaze mugs I used. I tried low temps and high temps with the well-glazed mugs — it IS possible to get it to stay on, if you bake at around for a couple of hours, but the paint marker still does a weird bubbly, crackly kind of thing that could be prevented by using a different kind of mug. It will definitely work out a lot better for you! I can tell you from experience that a regular Sharpie, baked or unbaked, will just wash right off the mug.
