i used duplicolor engine enamel gloss clear on my mugs and everything stuck perfectly. i used one coat on the front and one on the back. i used a mat board to place the mugs on and then used a heat gun to dry them for a good 15 minutes. the product stays on the mugs and is easy to remove. i used it on four mugs.
laurie – i did the same as you did. i used two coats, one on the front and one on the back. i used a mat board to place the mugs on and then used a heat gun to dry them for a good 15 minutes. i have not used a heat gun before and i was happy with the results. my mugs are not pretty. they are with a glossy finish.
if using a duplicate color for a different finish, such as the top coat for the interior, wait at least a week before applying the top coat. duplicate colors work best if used on the same finish. duplicate colors are not meant to be used on different finishes. if you try and apply a top coat, such as a satin finish, on top of a glossy finish, for instance, the duplicate color will not blend and will create a flaky appearance. if you do not have a duplicated color, such as a matte top coat, try using a very light coat of the gloss top coat, or even use the gloss top coat as a primer coat. this way the gloss top coat will sit on the surface of the finish and you will not see the lightest coat of gloss.
if you have a duplicated color, you can either treat it like a regular color, or you can work the duplicated color as a matte finish or a glossy finish, depending on your preference. you can also use the duplicated color as an opaque color or transparent color. if you have a matte or transparent color, you can apply this color over the duplicated color to create a different finish. a transparent color or matte can be used as a top coat.

i have a lot of duplicated colors, including a matte and a gloss top coat. i dont use these duplicated colors on different finishes, but i have used them as a matte or gloss top coat on my vessels. this allows me to have a lighter matte or gloss top coat on my vessels.
you need to be patient. both clay and glaze will change the hue of some colors over time. the color will only be as bright as the clay/glaze when it is freshly made. if you don’t wait at least a week or two, the colors will begin to dull. however, the color will only dull down to where it is the original color, and not change the hue. if you are using a brighter color, say a pearl color, you may want to wait longer to see if the color dulls before trying to use it.
if youre a seasoned painter, and you have had success with dupli color, you can probably give me some pointers on how to make my mugs stay. i have a small set of mugs that i use for hot and cold drinks, water and coffee. after the mugs cool down, the paint starts to dry and i notice the bottom of the mug is getting slightly fuzzy. i think this is because the paint is not thick enough to completely cover the mug. i have tried using a thicker, more glossy dupli color paint. no luck. i have even tried dupli color thinners and i have not had much luck with that. the only thing that seems to work is a brush on the front of the mug, which i do not find is as effective as i would like. i have seen people spray the entire mug with dupli color (i think its called a mug top). they seem to be pretty thick, but maybe thats just the thickness of the paint i was using. so any suggestions on how i can get the front of the mug to stay more glossy (and not just the bottom) is welcomed. do you use a thinner to thin the paint before you coat the mug? is there a brush on the market, or do you mix your own thinner?
