Cute cress cup

Make your own eye-catching kitchen décor

Whether as a small gift or something to keep for yourself, here’s an adorable cress bowl that makes a lovely kitchen decoration. As you can see, we picked a cute mole motif, but you can go for anything you fancy. We used edding porcelain brush pens for this idea, as they’re ideal for turning a plain ceramic or porcelain bowl into an attractive accessory with ease. The tip of the brushpen is highly versatile, allowing you to produce fine lines as well as broad brush strokes. Even novices needn’t be afraid of having a go at this creative project, because you can wipe off your drawing with a damp cloth at any time and make corrections right up until it’s ready for baking. Once you’re happy with your picture, let the ink dry for a short while, then bake the bowl in a pre-heated oven to set the design.
