Permanent Markers on Ceramics
With so many mass produced products, it is fun to create something unique.
A while back, I did a post about using permanent markers on ceramics to create one of a kind "painted dishes". It was a relatively simple project and the results were very rewarding.
However, a number of people have contacted me, with the same question:
Is there anyway to erase if you make a mistake? YES!
All you need are Q-tips and rubbing alcohol. Apply the alcohol to a Q-tip and carefully dab the mistakes you want removed. Be careful not to over soak the Q-tip. If you don't like anything you have drawn, just soak paper towels in alcohol and rub off the entire image!
Here are a few more examples of pieces I created last year.
Singe elements; one flower, one feather, one spider... seem to work best on mugs.
I have also been experimenting, using different gray markers with the black. I have been meaning to try out colored markers but just haven't had the time.
There are several non-toxic permanent markers available on the market. I generally use Slick Writers.

Enjoy making your own creations!
