From old plates to stylish wall art

Upcycling idea for gran’s old porcelain

There are so many ways to upcycle old porcelain plates, whether you’ve inherited your grandma’s old crockery or found some great pieces at the local car boot sale. We show you how, with the right pens, you can create your own stylish wall art from a few old plates. Available in 15 beautiful colours, the ink in edding porcelain brush pens has a creamy consistency and allows even colour distribution. What’s more, if you make a mistake or just aren’t happy with your design, you can simply wipe off the ink and start again.
