I've been wanting to try drawing on china and the other day, when I was in Michaels, I found one of the Porcelaine 150 pens, so I got it and tried it out on an old white china dinner plate I had gotten at a garage sale. After you draw on the china you let it dry for 24 hours and then put it in a 300 degree oven for 30 minutes to make it dishwasher proof. Easy-peasy, huh?
Here's my plate:
Oh what fun! The pens come in colors, too - and in different point sizes. (I used the fine point on this plate.)
I think I'm heading back to the store tomorrow to get a few more. I've go more of the garage-sale china to practice on. I predict the day will zip by and none of the cleaning I had planned will get done.
So be it - I got creatin' to do! (P.S. If you'd like to, check out the small art quilts I've been making everyday in a new practice I started this week. They're over on my other blog here and for sale here!)
