Painting Vintage China

I stumbled into a wonderful thing a little while ago.....and I just can't get enough of it! It's the Porcelain Pen/Marker!! The possibilities are endless and I can't stop drawing! Basically, you just draw and then bake it in the oven and it's good to go! Dishwasher safe and everything. I've only just begun...but here are a few of my little "etsy" inspired practice pieces...(all done on vintage china found at my local thrift store). I just wish I'd bought more pen colours while I was at Michaels!





ps...can you tell I'm quite attached to my little white bird that's been showing up in so many photos? :)
