    Using a commercial overglaze or china paint may be the solution to keeping
    your design permanent.

    >Make sure that your design done in a china paint does not come in contact
    with food or near your lip line (on a cup). China paints and overglazes
    contain materials and chemicals that must melt at a low temperature. The
    best flux for melting at a low temperature is lead.

    Lead is not a food safe material.
