Cheery hand-painted mugs

Cute-looking mugs for guaranteed party fun

A child’s birthday is the highlight of their year, and the big day usually can’t come around soon enough. To make it special and memorable for us parents, too, it’s a good idea to start preparing in good time and plan everything down to the last detail. So, as well as the invitations, games and goody bags, don’t forget to include some lovely table decorations. We think these adorable hand-painted mugs are just the job. Applying the design is much easier than it would seem at first glance, because with edding porcelain brush pens even beginners can achieve great results. Follow our step-by-step instructions and you simply can’t go wrong! The ink is specially formulated for porcelain and oven-proof glass. With its creamy consistency, it produces an even colour result. Once you’ve finished painting, let the colours dry for a short while before baking the mugs in a pre-heated oven to heat-fix the designs and make them dishwasher-safe.
