So, my friend was talking one day about how she likes stuff with this design, then how she loooves tea, then we went to a thrift store and saw these plain white teacups and she said how cute they were. I picked them up and said I loved them, too, and I was getting them.  Little did she know, later that day I also got porcelain paint pens Smiley I am so excited. Each teacup was 50 cents at the thrift store and the pens were $3 each, and I only used two colors. They're so easy to use; I haven't baked them yet like you're supposed to but I'm done painting them finally!
I'm planning to get her a cute purple porcelain teapot and some fancy tea for the rest of her gift Smiley Too bad I have to wait until February to give it to her!!

I love this, it's such a thoughtful gift. I'm sure your friend will be thrilled with them.

This is the best sort of gift, thoughtful and creative. Well done!

Very nice idea.  How do you bake them?

Can I use tempera paint instead of porcelain paint pens, because it's an amazing idea, but I may not find those kind of pens?

You can if you're just using them as art; once the pens are baked it becomes dishwasher safe, and (I believe) food safe. It says no health labeling required on the pen??

You bake it in a 325 degree oven for 40 minutes. MAKE SURE! That you put the cup/plate/whatever in the oven before you heat it up, and when it's done baking, turn off the oven and wait until it's completely cooled to take it out. This will prevent it from cracking.
