Although there are various types of ceramic dishes available on the market, they do not always meet our expectations. Both in terms of size and pattern or color. Sometimes, it is difficult to find the right product when a specific vision is still stuck in your head. No problem – you can make it happen. You do not need special skills to paint ceramics. The most important are willpower, imagination and creativity.
Self-painted kitchenware will be a perfect decoration of every table. It is also worth exposing it in a glass showcase. You can also place a plate or a bowl as a decoration on a coffee table or a dining room table.
Here are some of the best ways to decorate your home ceramics. Choose the best one for you and enjoy unique tableware. The whole family, including children, may have fun while painting dishes. It is best to use white dishes for this
Take your paint in hand!
First on the fire goes paint for porcelain, which is by far the best of its kind on the market. It is available in a wide range of colors. You will surely find the shade you are looking for
The dishes painted with such paint are indestructible – you can wash them in the dishwasher without any problems, without worrying that the design will be destroyed. To harden the paint, put the dish in the oven
Use nail polish
Nail polish will also come in handy for painting ceramics. Simply clean and degrease the dish beforehand using nail polish remover and then create a template for the decoration (for example, using sticky tape, which you have to press firmly onto the surface). When you paint the ceramic twice with nail polish, be careful that nothing spills under the tape – then the effect will not be so perfect and you will have to start from the beginning.
You need to be aware that nail polish on ceramic dishes is sensitive to external factors. It is not suitable for washing in the dishwasher or scrubbing with the sharp side of a sponge.
Porcelain Nail Pen
Would you like to create an intricate pattern on your mug, plate or bowl, smiling or thoughtful faces or maybe various inscriptions or slogans? Use a china marker, but not a regular one. You need a porcelain pen. You can buy it not only in the classic black color but also in neon and pastel ones. You can paint virtually anything with it, including even the smallest details.
Remember, moreover, that every dish which will be painted with the porcelain pen needs to be fixed in a heated oven. Then you can wash them in the dishwasher without any worries.
In such decorated kitchenware, every dish will taste much better
