floral porcelain pen plates diy

Thursday, 6 September 2012

 i went to the hobby craft store today and picked up some porcelain pens,
 i went there with the plan just to look and not buy anything which i failed at lol, i have tried porcelain pens out before, but i just had a black pen not coloured ones and it was a different brand that you have to bake after 24 hours to fix it to the plate but with these you don't need to do that, i was surprised at all the colours which where available, i have eyeing up some pretty dinner plates at cath kidston and pip studios for a while, so i got out some of my cath kidston stuff for inspiration and drew some flowers on these plain white plates which were 50p each. these pens are by marabou and after 3 days they are completely dry and dishwasher safe, the possibilities are endless, i may do some bowls and cups with the same pattern, then i can take the dinner wear i wanted off my Christmas list (i no its only just September but yes i already have a list lol)

  1. Aimee...I've looked at every porcelain pen I could find...and they all state that they are NOT foodsafe even after baking in the oven. Is this brand any different? I love making decorative plates...but I'm wanting to make my own dinnerware. Would love to know if you've found a brand that's safe with food!

  2. Oh my gosh... If only I drew this well then I would probably do too. These plates are adorable!!

  3. Adorable project Aimee. The plates look so sweet. Thank you for sharing at Shabbilicious Friday.

  4. I had no idea you could do this! Thanks!

  5. How talented you are! The plates are lovely! I could never draw such pretty flowers, but maybe I could scribble free-form doodads... on plates for my little granddaughters... as long as they were unbreakable...!
