DIY-painted porcelain

DIY-painted porcelain
I wanted to revamp my china a bit so I painted it, well more like
doodled on it. I used a porcelain paint pen, which I purchased at
Michael's and drew my design. Once finished, you just bake it at
300 for 35 mins and you're done!
What do you think?

  1. The pattern is beautiful! I've wanted to try this for a while on some mugs but haven't been certain which pens to use, but now I know :) Have a great weekend.

  2. They look great! Ages ago I decorated some mugs with Pebeo Porcelaine paints but have never tried the pens. I like how much control you have with them; I'm much happier drawing than painting :)
    Could you tell us which pens you bought so I get the right ones? Thx

  30. Very fun! How many pens do you think it would take to do an entire set (6 mini plates, 6 full size and 6 bowls)

  31. This is amazing! Thanks for the great tip!

    I will be making a trip to Michael's today.

  32. They remind me more of ikea's FÄRGRIK VÄLDIG plates. Nice job. Are the pens non-toxic?

    ReplyDelete

    1. I have since gotten rid of the plates. I do not know if they are non-toxic but I have painted some plates recently with a non-toxic porcelain paint that only lines the edges so it's not really in the way of food.
