The Joy of Ceramic Pens

Well I’ve said before that I was super eager to give ceramic pens a go. Ever since I received my beautiful Holiday Swap Ornament from Aesthetic Outburst. I was absolutely smitten with it. My problem was that I just couldn’t think what I wanted to draw on. However, with Christmas came my ace present of an espresso machine (I now have a serious coffee addiction. Delicious!), and I needed a little jug to use when frothing milk (fancy eh?). I have jugs already. It’s just none of them are the right fit. But I was in the supermarket the other day and I wandered upon a bog standard white jug about the right size. It was £3 and so simple it was impossible to offend. I thought for the time being it would do. But then! I managed to get my little mitts of some ceramic pens! And they are just the coolest things ever! I bought fine tips and the control you can get with them is incredible (if only I had a steadier hand). So I set to work on my little boring jug…

Here (below) is my boring old jug before me and my porcelain pen got to work, along with my lovely bauble for inspiration. And then I got doodling! Such great fun. And the best part? It doesn’t need to be put in the oven to set. It naturally air drys. How great? Have you tried porcelain pens?
