This was a wedding present for my cousin Joshua and his lovely wife Charlotte, painted onto a plain white ceramic platter using fabulous Pebeo Porcelaine marker pen.
It couldn’t be easier – just draw on your design with the marker pen, making as many changes as you like, (it comes off with water), and when you’re happy with it just bake it in the oven and it becomes fully microwave- and dishwasher-proof.
If I was making another one, I might try a cream rather than white plate, for more of a Emma Bridgewater look, but I was really pleased with this, and the bride and groom tell me they use it a lot, (but might well just be being polite!).
The blessing reads: “May you have warm words on a cold evening, a full moon on a dark night, and the road downhill all the way to your door“.
