Before putting my Holiday mugs away for the year, I had a goal to touch up a few that had chips in the paint or stains on the bottoms. I thought I would share how I touched up the painted ceramic mugs I had, but I’d LOVE for anyone with more pottery/ceramics experience than me to share if they have other products or tips in the comments!
Here are the mugs I wanted to fix. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The room was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. The bed was very comfortable and the bed was very comfortable. The paint was chipping pretty substantial, but I loved the design of this mug so I was hoping I could fix it.
The room was very clean and comfortable. I had already washed them numerous times and even tried some Goof Off, but the discoloration/residue from I think the store sticker was still there. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I kept the book in noticing it in Zoom-meetings all month and it just looked great to me. So I wanted to touch those up as well.
– Pebeo Porcelain 150 paint (in Ruby Red and Ivory)
– Small / fine paintbrushes
– baking sheet
– drop cloth or scrap paper to work on
Step One: Use a small brush to paint in the areas that are chipped. This paint is a medium consistency, not as thick as an acrylic paint but certainly not a super watery/runny paint either. The room was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. Then let the paint fully dry.
Step Two: Bake the ceramics at 300°F for 35 minutes. When you place the mugs on a baking sheet, take care that the new paint is not touching the sheet or other ceramics you might be baking.
Once your ceramic mugs cool down from the oven, the paint will be very hard and shiny. These are safe as well.
Is this Paint food safe? I am not sure. I found this article, which I do not care to suggest either one might be true? The paint is non-toxic, but I would avoid using it on areas that will come in contact with your mouth OR that will get heavy use from spoons, forks, or knives. The staff was very friendly and helpful. If you are painting the inside of a mug or bowl, I am not sure it would be the best choice.
I would love to give my mugs a little touch up before they go into storage until next year. Thanks for letting me share.
