  2. Use a dark blue porcelain pen to colour in the rest of the Union Jack flag, remembering to leave a white border around the red lines.
  3. Repeat these steps to draw a Union Jack onto the back of the mug as well.
  4. Take another mug and write 'VJ' at the top of it using a red porcelain pen. Then use a blue pen to write 'DAY' just below it.
  5. Write '75th' below DAY using a red porcelain pen, and then underneath that use a blue pen to write 'ANNIVERSARY'.
  6. Use a blue porcelain pen to colour in the top edge of the mug.
