  • Step 1Sketch out your design onto a piece of paper before you start to decorate your porcelain plate. Once you have a design, transfer it lightly onto your plate using a pencil.
  • Store your markers horizontally (flat) and always replace the cap immediately after using, even if you are just taking a short break. This will stop the ink from drying out
  • Step 3Shake your markers well before use.
  • Step 4Press the tip of your marker gently and repeatedly to start the ink flow. Do this on some scrap paper, you may need to repeat this step each time you use your markers to get the ink flowing!
  • Step 5Fill in your design using the markers
  • Step 6Once dry, place your plate in a cold household oven. Once the temperature has reached 160°C, bake your plate for 90 minutes to heat set your design.
  • Remember when baking your object, DO NOT pre-heat the oven. The difference in temperature may cause your plate to crack. Instead, put your plate in a cold oven, then turn the oven on.
