I love customizing my life to the fullest, in the era of globalization and millionaire runs, customize your purchases It makes a little more yours those mass-produced products that everyone has at home.
Some time ago I wanted to work with ceramics and last week I threw myself, I painted some white cups to drink coffee with milk and others for afternoon tea, It's very easy to do, and look how beautiful they were.
Do it yourself: Customize your dishes, here I tell you how to do it step by step. I have also prepared a selection of creative designs for you to choose the one that best suits your decoration.
- Porcelain Markers 160ºC of the house C. Kreul of the color or colors you want (you can buy them for € 3.95, approximately, at Amazon or any store on-line of crafts).
- A set of white porcelain coffee or of the color that you prefer, or any piece that you plan to decorate, a bowl for fruit, some plates for the children, ... The set that you see in the cover image formed by four plates and four cups is from Carrefour and it cost me six Euros
First decide what print you want to put on the cups, you can add funny phrases, drawings kawaii of kittens, bears or rabbits or prints, freckles, flowers or borders. Along the post You will find many ideas, all very simple to make, you do not need to be an artist.
Once you have chosen the design, you can do two things: paint with the marker directly on the cup the desired pattern or drawing But if you are afraid, draw it first on a paper with a soft pencil and transfer it to the cup by rubbing the paper against the cup with your fingers, so that the pencil sticks to the cup.
Once the pencil has been transferred to the cup, you can continue the drawing with the marker. Once finished let dry four hours and then we will fix it by baking it in the oven at 160ºC for 90 minutes.
A few cups for each time of the year
If you search on the internet or go to any large surface you will find sets of four cups for about six euros, a price more than affordable. You can afford to customize cups for specific parties, be it Christmas, Easter or Castañada.
Customize a vase, a fruit bowl or your dishes
With this technique you can paint any piece of porcelain that you fancy, plates, bowls for the fruit, vases and trays.
A personalized gift
You can give some cups for Valentine's day to your partner with a beautiful phrase, to your children with their names or their face, and to your family or friends, adapting to the taste of each one.
