A new look for vintage crockery

Upcycle granny’s porcelain plates

If you’ve got old porcelain lurking in the darkest reaches of your kitchen cupboards or even in your basement, it’s high time to bring it out for redecorating. That’s because, whether they feature a gold rim or floral patterns, vintage-style plates and cups can be transformed into your very own, brilliantly unique upcycled crockery using porcelain brush pens from edding. With 15 beautiful colours to choose from, the ink has a creamy consistency and allows uniform coverage. To be able to enjoy your design for many years to come, let the ink dry briefly before firing in a preheated oven.
