I was wandering around pinterest a couple of weeks ago, trying not to worry too much about Mother’s Day crafts for my cub scouts, when I saw an image of handprints on mugs from the corner of my eye. Perfect! I thought, easy to do, quick, and something cute for mum!
In Australia, the paint equivalent is Pebeo Porcelaine 150, available at Spotlight for about $10 per colour. The pens are the same price as the pots of paint.
I bought two colours of paint, turquoise and rose, but the rose was too runny to give a clear impression on the cup (and smeared very easily) It washed off hands, cups and the brush very well with soap.
The paint needs to dry for 24hrs, then get baked for 35min in a low oven (150C/300F), then it is dishwasher safe.
It took about 20min to do prints for my 6 cubs, including washing up the table!
