Pinterest Project: The Porcelain Pen

by Emily Kipp

I recently discovered a fun little thing called a Porcelain Pen. This pen, available for purchase at craft stores, allows you to permanently write on anything porcelain!!! This is a super personal way to give gifts, or allows you to make your own really cool, cheap dishes!

The incredible Porcelain Pen looks great on mugs and makes for an awesome gift.

Essentially all you need to do is write on a porcelain object with the porcelain pen and bake at the temperature indicated on the pen (temps and times vary with different pen brands). The Dollar Tree has a huge selection of plain porcelain dishes for $1, if you need some. If you have an oopsie, its generally easy to wipe off the paint pen with a damp paper towel before it completely dries, within a minute or so. After that it might be harder to remove, and then after it is baked it is on for good. 

Any porcelain dish you could imagine is now able to be personally customized with the Porcelain Pen.

If you're lacking inspiration on what to write on them, I've got some ideas:

Movie Quote

Geometric Design

Food Recipes

A Silhouette 

Phrases that go along with the item being written on. For example, "Keep Calm and Snuggle" on a mug.

If you still need more inspiration, I've gathered a few of my favorites from online. All of these are black on white, but don't be afraid to use multiple colors of porcelain pen or write on a colored porcelain object!

Let your unique and witty personality take control and have fun with the Porcelain Pen.
