Brilliant handmade gifts for mums: painted mugs

If you’re looking for a lovely present for your mum, we have the perfect idea for you: DIY painted cups and mugs. Homemade and handcrafted gifts are always extra-special and will be treasured by anyone, not just mums! What’s more, you don’t have to be an artist to decorate your mugs with love or laughter any way you please. With the edding porcelain brushpens, even beginners will get great results. We show you our foolproof method in our step-by-step instructions. The special ink for porcelain and oven-proof glass boasts a creamy application and an even colour result. After finishing your designs, leave the ink to dry for a short while before baking them in a pre-heated oven. Your designs will then be dishwasher-safe!
