DIY Plate Art


Need another great way to get the kids to eat their veg?

The artist in me has had a real work-out!

I have discovered Porcelaine pens to create my own art on plates and cups. So I have been hunting high and low for innovative ways of using the hand drawn crockery and experimented with quite a few different object and pens.

Sharpie permanent pens do NOT work as well as many have claimed. I managed to lose a single plate's art work in one meal time. So sad. So it's back the good old reliable Procelaine 150 pen once again.

To create your own masterpiece, simply:
  • Draw your design with a black Porcelaine 150 pen.
  • Allow 24 hours to dry.
  • Bake in oven for 35 minutes at 150C/300F.

So easy! Even the kids can do it (with adult supervision).
As you get better with design try one or two more Porcelaine pen colours. So cool!!!
