DIY HAND PAINTED TEA CUPS

It’s getting to that time of year again where the dining table becomes the focus of pretty much all your activities, and I’m definitely not complaining! But for me, it’s as much about what’s on the table as what goes in my mouth. Which is why, I’m sure you’ll not be surprised, I’ve been wanting to get creative with plateware and cups for so long, I just couldn’t decide what to use. Enter Painters, non toxic paint markers by Elmers, which work on any surface (metal, wood, ceramics, fabric, leather etc) without rubbing off. Versatile like ceramic paint but easy to apply like a pen. Such a simple update to any old set of plates or tea cups.

You need:

  • Ceramic plateware
  • Painter markers

How to:
1. Use a light pencil to sketch out any designs you want on your plates, we went for really simple ones like circles and scallops.

2. Using your Painters, do the outline of the shape, and then fill it in.

3. Allow to dry and then use as normal.

In case you’re interested, there’s a monthly Painters competition happening until the end of the year, with each month being a different theme. This month is all about holiday decorations and gifts (like these plates and cups). All you have to do to enter is submit your projects here, and share your creations on social media with #StyleByAisle and #PaintersStyle. Monthly prize winners will receive winning a $500 price. I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
