I’ve been thinking about using a ceramic pen to decorate some simple, plain white plates and things for a while. I found these egg cups and plates in Hobbycraft, along with the ceramic pen so thought I would give it a go. I had no particular design in mind, but wanted it to be simple, fun and not to cover the entire surface. I came up with the idea of just scribbling in a masked-off area and I think it looks quite effective.
All you need is some ceramic objects that have been washed in warm soapy water and thoroughly dried, a ceramic pen, and masking tape. The pen I used doesn’t require you to bake the items in the oven, but takes 3 days to dry before you can use or put in the dishwasher.
