Kitchen gift idea: love potion

Utensil holder with a special message

Homemade gifts are really personal, which is why people always love to receive them. Here’s an idea you can try when you next get an invitation and you’re looking for an unusual gift for the host: a porcelain container for holding kitchen utensils, which we decorated using edding porcelain brush pens. This amusing design idea shows a recipe for a “love potion”, full of magical ingredients. You could use any other recipe, of course – just make sure the list of ingredients isn’t too long! You can use edding porcelain brush pens to personalise your holder with decorations in gorgeous colours. Ideal for painting on porcelain and ovenproof ceramic, their special ink has a silky texture which produces an even finish – and there’s a total of 15 colours to choose from. When you’ve finished painting, leave the ink to dry for a short while before fixing your design by baking it in a pre-heated oven. Your design will then be dishwasher-safe.
