I’ve made mugs just as you’re talking about and have done extensive research but wasn’t able to find any FDA approved epoxy, I’ve also heard that no matter what finish you use be it Shellac, Lacquer, Poly to epoxy any finish… on any surface once it’s dried and cured there’s no leaching but nothing has been tested or proven, it’s all hear say, I’ve read the articles from those that make mugs and how to finish them with their methods but still nothing proven, I stopped making the mugs just for this reason as the $50.00 I was making per mug along with the worry of liability issues and reasons just wasn’t worth it for me, now saying that the epoxy I have used is this.

I believe the safest way to do it is to purchase the stainless inserts and make the mug so it can hold the insert.

Monte here on LJ’s makes mugs might send him a message.
