At the risk of blowing Christmas gift surprises (mom, stop reading!), here's my entry into the fall Pinterest Challenge.
I had pinned this project (first seen here, then pinned from here, and recreated in part from templates found here)
A pitcher and a little sugar packet holder to beautify my Splenda stash.
Crappy pictures, but fun project! I used the recommended pens, purchased at Michaels, and was impressed . . . by the ones that actually worked.
There were limited colors available and of the assortment I purchased, several weren't working at all, which was frustrating. But I was able to make do with the ones that did work properly. They were baked to cure them last night and I did the fingernail test on the fatter black dots in the pitcher's flowers. Didn't budge!
I have a few other pieces to make and ideas for what to put on them. Ross was a great resource for inexpensive porcelain pieces (I was careful to select on the ones labeled porcelain or that clearly said oven-safe on them, just in case), though I noted at least one of the pens I purchased (the peridot green) said it air-cured in 72 hours. It air-cured but then got baked as well. Seems to have done fine. So, uh, Merry Christmas, friends and family! And hooray to me for actually completing a project!
