Salt and pepper shakers

Decorate your plain salt and pepper shakers and end dinner time confusion

Although plain white salt and pepper shakers match with any porcelain service, they have one crucial drawback: how do you tell which is which? The edding porcelain brushpen offers an elegant solution, however. Its flexible brush nib is ideal for designing and painting the SALT and PEPPER script, either in very fine lines or broad strokes. Depending on which colour shades you prefer, you can choose from edding porcelain brushpen sets containing warm red tints, cool blue hues or assorted colours. The luxuriously smooth application provides an even finish with no dripping or clumping. And if the letters don’t quite match your expectations after you’ve applied them, you can simply wipe them away with a damp cloth and try again until you’re ready to bake them in the oven to set.
