Before decorating, clean thoroughly in the dishwasher and use a detergent or methylated spirits to remove fingerprints or traces of grease. As you decorate, make sure there are no unnecessary fingerprints underneath the ink as you apply it.
Only use the brushpen for decorative purposes. Avoid decorating areas of the porcelain that are used for cutting, eating or drinking. For example, only decorate the rim of a plate or the outside of a mug. If you make a mistake, immediately remove it with a damp cloth or cotton bud. Try out the various designs on paper first.
Place the figure on a cold oven rack, slide it into a pre-heated oven and bake at 160°C for 25 minutes. Leave it to cool down in the oven afterwards.
After baking, the design on your figure is dishwasher-safe. Daily cleaning: avoid friction and rubbing by positioning the item in the dishwasher so that it's not in contact with other items of crockery or cutlery.
