3. Let dry. Then add a glossy acrylic sealer with a sponge brush just over the design. You might need to add more             layers of sealer, depending on your design. Be sure to let dry between applications.

Notes: The sealer should not be brushed over the inside or any areas you drink out of. The mug should be cleaned with mild soap and water, as it’s not dishwasher safe.
