Painting porcelain - coffee place setting

A bright idea for brunch or breakfast – start your day with splashes of Ultra Violet

You can never really go wrong with white porcelain, because it goes with just about anything! Sometimes, though, you need a little more colour, especially at the breakfast table. With edding porcelain brush pens, painting on porcelain is a piece of cake! We particularly love Ultra Violet, Colour of the Year 2018. A bold shade of purple, it communicates creativity and the joy of experimentation. We decorated a milk jug, a sugar bowl and even a coffee filter holder with simple designs, adding lines and dots arranged in patterns. We’ll show you our foolproof method in our step-by-step guide. These porcelain brush pens, available in coordinating colours, are ideal for painting oven-proof porcelain or glass because their special ink has a silky texture, producing an even finish. After you’ve created your design, leave the ink to dry for a short while before baking the items in a pre-heated oven. Your designs will then be dishwasher-safe.
