Intro: Jazz Up a Teapot
I'm not much a tea drinker, but when I have a cup I like it to be from a pretty teapot.
Step 1: Take a Plain Teapot
I had an old white teapot lying around, looking a bit drab, and thought I'd have a go at brightening it up.
After seeing this instructable https://www.instructables.com/id/Community-Kids-Bui... I thought I'd use the same sort of pens rather than paints.
Step 2: Pencil the Text
I started off by using pencil to draw an outline of the text. It wasn't easy as I don't think I had the right sort of pencil but after a few attempts I could make out the letters.
I used ceramic pens which, for me, are considerably easier than paint and paintbrushes.
Step 3: Decorate and Bake
I decided on a simple spotty design for my first attempt, although drawing free hand circles wasn't that easy!
After the design was finished I baked the teapot in the oven for 25 minutes at 160 degrees celsius to make the design permanent.
Time for a cuppa now!
