Get all your materials ready. For best results, wash the items of crockery in water (a dishwasher is ideal for this), then wipe over with methylated spirits.
We recommend you leave the insides blank and only paint the outer surfaces. The tip of the porcelain brush pen is flexible, allowing you to create very fine lines (by applying the tip only) or broader brush strokes (by holding the pen flat). First, draw a grid pattern around the coffee filter.
If you make a mistake, you can easily fix it with a damp cloth or cotton bud. Decorate with dots at the points where the lines meet. When you’ve finished designing, leave the ink to dry for 15 minutes. Next, bake your items for 25 minutes in a preheated oven at 160°C. Place the porcelain on a cold oven shelf before sliding it into the oven. Leave in the oven to cool afterwards. After baking, your hand-painted crockery will be dishwasher-safe.
To create the purple design on the sugar bowl, draw a series of vertical lines all the way round and then join them up with slanted lines.
Here's an example of a decorative design in different shades of blue.
