Ashley Brooke on painting porcelain craft

Holiday Craft Night

Okay, I’m back with another fun craft to do this holiday season, or really, ANY season – painting porcelain. I think this would be so much fun to do with family and kids over the holidays… DIY Pumpkin Pie Plates or Santa’s Cookies Plate. Much like dyeing linen napkins last week. This craft is equally satisfying.

Quick backstory on this craft

I ordered custom hand painted monogramed plates for my girlfriend Carly when she and Mike got married back in September. I was SO excited for them to come in and when they arrived they were wrong. Long story short, I wasn’t able to gift the plate and was left feeling frustrated… in my head it was such a fun gift idea. So I started doing some research on how I could paint my own. Because let’s be real, it can’t be THAT hard, can it?!

Around the time I was researching, my friend Anna posted an Instagram story tutorial of her painting her own plates using a porcelain pen, and I thought YES. This is what I was looking for. I watched a few of her beautiful videos and decided to give it a whirl.

And gosh, well, welcome to my new favorite hobby. I AM OBSESSED. It’s so easy and truly FUN. Try this craft out and let me know how it goes. I promise you will be hooked.


I just followed the directions on the pen and it was super simple! But I will say, keep a damp paper towel near by just in case you mess up. You can EASILY wipe it clean and start over.

TO USE: markers can be used on all surfaces that can sustain baking instructions, including porcelain, china, glazed earthenware, terracotta, metal, enamelled sheet steel, copper, glass, and more.” – PEBLO

HEAT & WATER RESISTANT FINISH: Once fully dry, bake Porcelain 150 for another 35 minutes in any conventional oven at 300 °F for dishwasher, UV and microwave resistance; Paint your own dinnerware, teacups, coffee mugs, and more!” – PEBLO

  2. Thank you so much for this info. I’ve been looking for a craft that my 7 year old niece and I could do together/simultaneously over Zoom. This just might be it. I can send her the supplies we’ll need and we can design them while we do a Zoom session. Woohoo – I’m excited about this!!
