Painting cups is easier than some believe!
So you can paint the cups with porcelain paints!
In our example, the cups were processed with porcelain brushes. For best results, follow the steps outlined below. Rinse and thoroughly dry the surface, which is picturesque to work. Place paper, newspapers or other material underneath the work surface, which you can then eject.
You do not necessarily have to clean up afterwards. For different areas you can use different sizes of jaws. They are more suitable for different types of motifs. In the example here bigger ones were used for purple and smaller ones – for blue ornaments.
Simple motifs can be easily applied with porcelain brushes
Procedure with porcelain pins
You can paint cups not only with stains, but also with porcelain pens. The procedure in this case begins with the precautionary rinsing of the cups at high temperature. Any kind of dirt, such as grease stains, must be removed. After applying the drawings, you should allow them to dry for a few minutes just as with the technique previously described. Then they would have to be baked in a preheated oven at 160 degrees.
The materials for cup painting are not too many
Be careful when using
There are special colors for painting dishes and yet you can not say that they are healthy. In general, it can always be dangerous to your health if you come in contact with it while drinking or eating. That’s why the ornaments should be applied so that they can not penetrate our body.
And one last tip: when rinsing you should avoid friction and machining with aggressive means! You can find more ideas and tips for painting cups as well in this article on our website !
