Well, I was inspired by this post which I saw on Pinterest (oh, how we love thee!). I mainly loved the design and wanted to try the same thing. You can find all kinds of fun design ideas all over the Internet, including tips from everybody's friend, Martha.
I ordered the Pebeo Porcelaine 150 in black in two tips, 1.2mm and .7 mm. I already had some plain pottery on hand that I had purchased long ago for some forgotten project (What? That never happens to you?!).
Here are my designs. Done free hand and, as you can see, not exactly perfect. But I like that!
I like my mug especially, and would like to try some more designs. This would be a fun way to make an eclectic set of dishes, using things found at the thrift store or yard sales.
OF NOTE: The Pebeo Porcelaine pens are not designated as food safe. So, the plate will only be used decoratively, or perhaps as a small serving tray. Make sure to do your own research before using anything you've painted with food! Let's be safe and have fun out there!
