mushroom themed teapot and teacups I painted using Sharpie paint pens and Marth Stewart acrylics for ceramics.

I really like these.  I saw the ones you made for a swap.  It's so funny you posted this because I was going to pm you anyway.  I wanted to know which Sharpie paint pens you use.  Is it the Oil Based ones or the Water Based ones or both?  Sorry if that's silly question.  I've never worked on ceramics.

 I love these. I know someone else asked about the sharpie pens, and I'm curious as well. I was wondering what type of sharpies you could use on ceramics?  I would love to try something like this but are you able to wash it?

Love your mushrooms!  I've been wondering how that Martha paint for ceramics holds up, it looks like you get pretty good coverage with it.

I love this set! The way you did the colors is really nice - I like how you blended, shaded and highlighted with the paints.

Thanks everyone,
I used oil based sharpie paint pens.

Pretty sure the price just went up because I don't remember spending $32 on my set. But I really like them.  They just flow very nice.  You can use normal sharpies but I'd only recommend them for writing, outlining, or small areas. for larger areas I think you'd see stroke marks where as with the paint pens, there's less of that going on. and the paint pens have a more of a gloss finish.

Both the sharpie paint pens and the martha stewart paints hold up well to handwashing. I have a mug I painted around July with the Martha Stewart pens and I use it a lot and handwash it and it looks as good as new.  I have not tried dishwashing either. although I know someone who put a glass in the dish washer that was painted with the Martha Stewart paints and it didn't go so well.  I suppose I should do a test on the sharpie paint pens.
