Another Pinterest Project

I saw yet another activity on pinterest that I thought we could have a go at trying. I really need to stay away from that site.

All you need to do is write on some ceramics with a sharpie or permanent marker and then bake it in the oven at approximately150 degrees Celsius (300 Fahrenheit) for 30 minutes.

I have a white dinner set which I am soooo over so I pulled out some of the side plates and let the girls have fun making designs on them.

Agent Smelly did some holly around the outside of hers and then tried to do some in the middle. When she did the ones in the middle she decided she didn't like them so we went to wipe them off with some nail polish remover (which works if wiped away properly).  She decided that she quite liked the pinkish colour that it was making,. So rather than wipe it completely off, she drew on some more red squiggles and added some nail polish remover to a cotton ball and squished it all over the middle for a mottled look. It looks quite effective.

The Fashionista went for a fruit design. Some of the colours change slightly when you bake them.

Then she quickly made an "All Blacks" rugby plate for her Papa for Christmas.

I have placed these through the dishwasher (after baking) and the markings are all still there so a successful pinterest activity ... YEAH!


  1. I will be interested to hear how long the marker stays on yours. We tried it on a saucer we had at Playcentre and baking it in the oven didn't seem to do anything. When we washed it with the dishes it started to rub off :(

    1. I wondered the same thing which is why I put it through the dishwasher straight away. I was surprised they didn't come off straight away to be honest. I'll let you know how they go.
