Personalise Cups and Saucers and Plates Before You Have a Tea Party

Painting crockery is probably a project any crafter needs to try at least once. But once you get into it, I'm sure you will be hooked.

Make a special one-off gift for a friend or family member. Or make a whole set of personal painted china.

Modern paints have made this process even easier to produce a nice result. So have fun and think of some pretty designs for your painted china.


What we need to make painted china.

  • Plain white china
  • Special ceramics paints, these paints are made permanent by baking them in the oven (check the paint instructions for exact directions)
  • Paintbrush

How To Paint Crockery

Step One

Make sure the crockery you want to paint is clean and dry.

To stop something rolling around you can lay it down on a old rag or paper towels. Start painting one side. Think about an overall design. Often simple designs are very effective. So maybe try some dots or stripes. These are easy designs and look very smart when finished.

Of course, you can paint more complex things, maybe flowers or animals or anything you like.

Take your time when you make painted china.

Carefully Paint Your Crockery And China

Step Two

Be careful not to smudge an area you have already painted. It might be better to let the paint dry before moving on or painting the other side of a cup.

If you paint something that you don't like, you can carefully wipe it off. If quick enough. Use a damp cloth.

Step Three

Keep adding colours and designs until you are happy with the results. When you make painted china it is all about what you like.

Step Four

To finish, follow the instruction on your ceramic paint.

Have fun making all sorts of designs. Don't worry if your designs do not look perfect. The homemade look is very popular and people really like to see that something has been made by someone's hands and not just printed in a factory.

So sometimes little errors are fun to leave in the design.

Have fun and make sure to make painted china for yourself and your friends and family.
