Browse around on Pinterest for long enough and you’ll come across a wide variety of permanent texta/Sharpie art on a huge range of kitchenware. And it all looks pretty simple, so I thought it would be a perfect Baby-Steps Creation endeavour.
A porcelain ‘thing’. Mugs, plates, jugs, salt and pepper shakers – the list goes on, just check out your local homewares sale section, you’ll be sure to find something inexpensive that could do with a make over.
A good quality permanent marker, and depending on what you’ll be drawing, one with a thin tip so you can be precise.
Now I command thee to let your imagination run wild! Are words your thing? Or perhaps you can draw killer petunias. Whatever it is, make sure you practise beforehand, and remember that you won’t be drawing on a flat surface, so it can take a while to get used to.
All you have to do now is bake your creation in the oven for 20-30 minutes at about 175’C. I was a little worried that the tiny plate wouldn’t hold up to the heat, but it worked out perfectly.
I’m actually really happy with them – I shied away from any real arty pictures because that simply isn’t my forte. But I thoroughly recommend giving it a crack.
