Caren with a "C" said...

That is a cool project. Where did you get the pens? Great for kids!

Aesthetic Outburst... said...

Caren- the pens are from Michaels Craft Store- they're called porcelaine. :)

Elizabeth Buckler said...

I'm a new follower- so sad to miss the initial ten days of this! I typically thrift all of my mugs, dishes are my favorite things to look for, but how nice it would be to have a full set for my family! I've been looking at these pens but was weary of my own skills for how pricey each pen is. I had also read that the pens were hard to use and when the ink finally did flow it came in blotches. Glad to see it can be a successful!

Heidi said...

Love them all!! Think I'll have to get my own pen - got a tea mug that would match so well (with some alterations )

Ps I'm a new follower from Copenhagen

Unknown said...

I love the mugs & I love the idea, but did I miss the part where you mentioned the pen you used?

Aesthetic Outburst... said...

Lisa,

I used a porcelaine pen. They can be found at most large craft stores. Best of luck!

:) Abbey
