Hi all!

After getting completely overwhelmed at Hobbycraft earlier looking at all sorts of paints and other sparkly delights I thought it be best to come ask you talented people for a bit of advice and guidance!

I've two (of what I'm guessing) ceramic dishes which I'd like to repaint, I have no idea of what kind of paints / technique I need to use, both dishes seem to have a gloss coat on them - so I guess my questions are a) is it at all possible to repaint these? And b) if so what steps do I need to take? Also I should point out that these dishes are to use in the kitchen so have to be food friendly paint etc etc



Thank you for reading and happy crafting!  Cheesy

If you find something that works please post it:) I planned on painting mugs for christmas presents last year and spend weeks trying to find something that didn't scratch off. The best I found was using paints for ceramics and sharpies and then putting a clear topcoat over them. It didn't last very long, if you scratched at it with your finger it'd eventually come off. I ending up doing something else and now I have a bunch of plain mugs that I'd love to paint!

I am looking to do something similar with some very plain dishes. I found a product that may work -- Delta Creative's Air-Dry PermEnamel. Their website says you can use it in the oven (up to 350 degrees) and dishwasher, so I assume that means it's food safe. You have to use their Surface Conditioner before using the paints. The products run under $5 at Jo-Ann. I'll let you know how it works.
