Design your own coffee mug

Creative gift ideas for everyone

Coffee mugs and cups emblazoned with a star pattern or decorated mugs for tea make a lovely gift for someone – or even for yourself! The brush tip of the edding porcelain brushpen is really versatile which makes it easy to paint your own mug by adding fine lines and broad brush strokes to create all sorts of illustrations by hand, even lettering! What’s more, the creamy consistency of the porcelain brushpen ensures an even distribution of colour, without any drips. When you’ve finished decorating, leave the ink to dry for a short time before baking the cup in a preheated oven. Once baked, the pattern will be permanent and will even be dishwasher-safe.
